Cape Reinga, Northland, New Zealand

Description: Cape Reinga (Te Reinga or Te Rerenga Wairua in Maori) is the northwesternmost tip of the Aupouri Peninsula.
The name of the cape comes from the Maori word 'Reinga', meaning the "Underworld". Another Maori name is "Te Rerenga Wairua", meaning the leaping-off place of spirits. Both refer to the Maori belief that the cape is the point where the spirits of the dead enter the underworld.
