Mint set of three gummed stamps.

Individual stamps included in this set

$3.50 Fitzroy Bay, Marlborough Sounds

Accounting for 1,500km of New Zealand’s coastline, the Marlborough Sounds rests at the northern tip of the South Island. Bordered by a delicate collection of sheltered inlets and bays, its three main bodies of water are Queen Charlotte, Kenepuru and Pelorus Sounds.

$4.20 Whanganui River

New Zealand’s longest navigable river runs from Mount Tongariro down into Whanganui National Park. For over 800 years, Māori have lived here, and along the river are many marae (Māori meeting houses). Local iwi (tribes) have a strong connection with the river.

$4.70 Mount Ngauruhoe

Mt Ngauruhoe has been active for at least 2,500 years. Historically New Zealand’s most active volcano, it has produced more than 60 eruptive episodes since 1839, but there have been no eruptions since 1975. The mountain became a special attraction for visitors after it played the role of the fictional Mount Doom in The Lord of the Rings.
