Artist's Description

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGE TO VIEW LARGE.
Russell – formerly known as Okiato, was proclaimed the first capital of New Zealand in 1840. Governor Hobson was reluctant to name it the capital due to the fact that it had the reputation as being the ’ Hell Hole of the Pacific.’ The original settled village of Kororareka, five k’s south of Okiata was incorporated into the name of Russell a few years later. The name ’ Hell Hole of the Pacific ’ was well deserved as apart from being the main port of the time, it was the base for many whaling vessels to re-supply and crews took advantage of this stay in port to carouse and enjoy themselves.
From the photo you can see Paihia across the water.
