Photo: Canterbury Coastline Sunset Kaikoura Range New Zealand

A beautiful view from the end of the Kaikoura Peninsula of the Kaikoura Mountain Range towering above the Pacific Ocean coastline during sunset. This region of the Canterbury coastline is world renowned for being the home to the giant Sperm Whale.

Leading invitingly into the Pacific Ocean waters, the Mesozoic rocks in this region of Canterbury on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand are a prominent feature of the coastline.
