From High Country To Downlands

Geraldine, New Zealand

Artist's Description

The hills of Mid Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand.

The Southern Alps on Canterbury’s western boundary, and the secondary ranges further east were created by sedimentary rocks uplifting along the major South Island seismic fault lines.
The large valleys and basins within these mountains are known as the Canterbury high country.
To the east are gentle downlands and extensive alluvial outwash plains that extend to form much of the coastline of Canterbury.
These are known as the Canterbury Plains, the largest area of plains in New Zealand.
