Mint set of three gummed stamps.

Individual stamps included in this set

Single $2.60 'Escarpment Walkway, Paekakariki' gummed stamp.

Clinging to the hillside, this coastal trail is made up of steep staircases, narrow paths and swing bridges. Walkers are rewarded by its stunning outlook over an expansive seascape, with Kāpiti Island to the north and the Marlborough Sounds to the south.

Single $3.90 'Banks Peninsula, Canterbury' gummed stamp.

This formerly volcanic peninsula juts from the Canterbury coast between Pegasus Bay and the Canterbury Bight. It encompasses two large harbours and numerous bays and coves teeming with marine wildlife, including the world's smallest and rarest dolphin.

Single $4.50 'Shotover River Valley, Otago' gummed stamp.

A former hub of the gold rush, Shotover River is still a destination for small-time gold seekers, but today is primarily used for commercial jet boating and white-water rafting.
