Paratutae Island, Manukau Harbour, near Auckland, New Zealand.

In a tradition of the Maori tribes of South Manukau (Tainui) recorded in 1842 Kupe came with his grandfather, Maru-tawiti, and his brother-in-law Hoturapa and several others. They came to survey the land and return again. Nothing is known of the land from which they sailed. Kupe sailed around North Cape. At the Manukau Heads he struck Paratutae rock with his paddle, leaving an imprint which is visible to this day. See the great indentations in the cliff face on the photo. Awhitu Peninsula, South Manukau, visible in distance, far right.
