Situated at the north end of Poverty Bay, the white cliff headland of Young Nick's Head, at the other end of the bay, is visible from the city. This prominence was the first part of New Zealand sighted by the crew of Captain James Cook's ship Endeavour, and was named for the crew member who first saw it.
