Mount Arowhana

Mount Arowhana

Mount Arowhana lies in the Raukumara Range in the northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Part of the backbone of the range, which forms part of a line of mountains extending across much of the North Island, 1440 metre (4724 ft) Arowhana is second only to Mount Hikurangi in terms of height within the Raukumara Range.

The mountain is at the centre of a major watershed, with the Mata River, Waipaoa River, and a tributary of the Motu River all having their sources on its slopes.
