This volcanic plateau is characterised by its three active volcanoes Mount Tongariro, Mount Ngauruhoe, and Mount Ruapehu, which make up Tongariro National Park. The plateau is an extensive area, covering not only the National Park, but much of the central North Island. The National Park is significant in that it is a dual World Heritage Area – recognising both its cultural and spiritual significance, and its remarkable volcanic features.

Your address will hang proudly beneath these mountains – designed and made in New Zealand, it measures a maximum of 800mm wide by 600mm high, depending on your custom text. Constructed from weathering steel, your address panel will weather naturally, and settle into your landscape over time – forming a beautiful rusty patina.

Perfect as a gift, mounted to your fence or house, or affixed to timber as an entrance sign.

After clicking ‘proceed to checkout’, please ensure your desired address, how many lines of text you would like (1-3), and any additional design notes, are recorded in the ‘order notes’ box. This may include things such as whether you require mounting holes, and the location of these. Otherwise, the method of mounting the panel is your responsibility.

Description

New Zealand is a seismically active country – lying at the edge of both the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates. The Pacific plate subducts beneath the Australian plate to the east of the North Island. This action is the cause for the active volcanism and geothermal activity throughout much of the North Island. There is another subduction zone in the south of the South Island, but here the Australian plate subducts beneath the Pacific plate. Between these zones, the angle at which the plates meet, and grind past each other, has pushed up the Southern Alps along the Alpine Fault.

It is the forces of these plate motions, and the resulting network of faults that run throughout the country, which are the cause for the formation of the mountain ranges, islands, and geographical features that New Zealand is well known for.

You can choose to have your address or custom text hang beneath one of these marvels with your own Blazen.Metal address panel. Simply select which range, island or feature you identify with and we will do the rest. If your maunga is not featured, simply use the contact us form to suggest a new addition to the collection.
