- Mount Hikurangi, Northland
For the mountain in Gisborne, New Zealand, see Mount Hikurangi, Gisborne.
Although not as prominent as its eastern namesake, Northland's Mount Hikurangi is also of note. At 625 metres, this peak overlooks central Northland and is a prominent peak on the skyline at the Bay of Islands, the site of the first permanent European settlement in New Zealand.
There is also a volcanic cone near Hirangi, 365 metres high, called Hikurangi.
