Rohe introduction and map
Te Waipounamu region is the largest of Te Puni Kōkiri’s regional areas, covering approximately 49 percent of New Zealand (134,672,000 hectares). The regional boundary starts north of Kaikōura on the east coast of the South Island, goes south to Rakiura (Stewart Island) and up the West Coast to Kahurangi Point.
The Rohe map defines rohe boundaries. It differs from the Iwi maps which provide population densities.
For these profiles, New Zealand is divided into the following six Rohe areas - Ikaroa-Rāwhiti, Tāmaki Makaurau, Waikato-Waiariki, Te Tai Hauāuru, Te Taitokerau and Te Waipounamu.
