OTS News.co.uk t-shirt on world tour (Cape Reinga New Zealand) January 5th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments OTS News.co.uk t-shirt on world tour (Cape Reinga New Zealand) This week one of OTS News.co.uk t-shirt’s made it to Cape Reinga, the northern most tip of New Zealand where the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meets. Pictured below sporting the OTS T-shirt is former Southport resident Fred Bladon. Fred emigrated to NZ some years ago and has never looked back since! Cape Reinga is generally considered the separation marker between the Tasman Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east. From a high view point it is possible to watch the tidal race, as the two seas clash to create unsettled waters just off the coast. The cape is often mistakenly thought of as being the northernmost point of the North Island, and thus, of mainland New Zealand. However, North Cape’s Surville Cliffs, 30 km east of Cape Reinga, are slightly further north. Another headland just to the west of Cape Reinga is Cape Maria van Diemen, which was named by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman during his journey in 1642 and thought of by him to be the northernmost point of the newly discovered country he named ‘Staten Landt’ Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
