East Cape is the easternmost point of the main islands of New Zealand. It is located to the north of Gisborne in the northeast of the North Island.

The name "East Cape" is also used to refer to the Gisborne region around the cape stretching from just north of the Mahia Peninsula northwards, and inland to Te Urewera National Park.[citation needed] This region was the site of many of the major conflicts of the New Zealand land wars in the 1860s.
