Photo Gallery


This basaltic scoria cone is one of 30 Pleistocene to upper-Holocene eruptive centers in the Kaikohe-Bay of Islands volcanic field near the tip of the Northland Peninsula in NW-most North Island, New Zealand. The most recent eruptions produced scoria cones and lava flows near Te Puke about 1300-1800 years ago. The volcanic field also contains small shield volcanoes, along with minor rhyolitic lava flows and domes.
