Photo: Kawhia New Zealand Welcome Sign

The welcome sign to the town of Kawhia, New Zealand with a beautiful scenic view of the harbour in the backdrop.

As you drive along the North Island of New Zealand you will come to the spectacular town of Kawhia where a welcome sign displaying a Gannet is located. The Gannet is represented on the sign as Kawhia is home to Gannet Island, the largest breeding colony for Australasian Gannets throughout New Zealand.

The welcome sign is set in stone surrounded by a beautiful green patch of grassland and shaded by a tree that grows along the coastline.
