Rangitoto Island, as seen from Devonport, appeared above the sea due to volcanic action a short while ago (800 years) in geologic time. It is the youngest volcanically formed area on earth and probably well worth a visit. Unfortunately, they were busily poisoning rats (a terrible predator to New Zealand's endemic wildlife) so I preferred to stay away. It just means I'll have to return some day!
