Whenua

Taramakau The Taramakau River rises in Kā Tiritiri-o-te-moana (the Southern Alps) and flows into Te Tai-o-Rehua (the Tasman Sea) south of Greymouth. The upper reaches of the Taramakau are renowned as a source of pounamu, with several significant pounamu working sites located at the river mouth. The Taramakau was a major traditional travel route providing direct access to Nōti Taramakau (Harper Pass), one of the lowest and most accessible passes through the mountainous terrain of Kā Tiritiri-o-te-moana.
