Farewell Spit is the longest sandspit in New Zealand. This book describes the formation of this fascinating, ever-changing, landform, the long Maori association with the area, and its sighting by early European explorers. Used for rough grazing from the 1850’s, after a long battle it was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1938, and cattle finally removed in the 1970’s.

The site of many shipwrecks, the first lighthouse was erected in 1870, to be replaced by the present one in 1897. The Spit provides habitat for many interesting plants and abundant birdlife, and has been the site of numerous whale strandings.
