With over 15,000 kilometres of coastline there is a breath-taking range of locations to experience the rich scenic diversity found on a journey around the coast
Few New Zealanders live far from the coast, and many cherish the special nature of seaside communities, and their place in our early history as a source of food, and valuable minerals, and a busy coastal shipping industry.
From the picturesque sandy beaches of the east, to the long drifts of black sand on the west, the visitor will also encounter evidence of the forces that have shaped our land, and ongoing nature of the upheavals caused by the continental plates which meet beneath New Zealand.
With well-researched introductions and descriptive captions that reference the history and current land use around the coast, Alison Dench s text adds context and depth to Rob Suisted s evocative photographs.
