Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This list excludes most mountains in the Ross Dependency, an area of Antarctica claimed by and administered by New Zealand, though it does include the similarly claimed and administered Balleny Islands. These claims are in abeyance, in accord with the Antarctic Treaty. If mountains in the Ross Dependency were included in this list, several notable peaks would appear in the upper part of this list, including Mount Erebus which, at 3795 m (12,451 ft), would outrank Aoraki/Mount Cook.

  3. ^ Heights, prominence and coordinates were extracted from the official LINZ's 1:50,000 maps at the interactive topographic map of New Zealand site.
  4. ^ First ascent dates and parties were mostly extracted from the National Route database at Climb NZ
  5. ^ Aoraki was 3764 m high until 14 December 1991, when a massive rock/ice collapse broke off 10 meters. Subsequent erosion of the exposed ice cap reduced its height by a further 30 m as of November 2013.[1]
  6. ^ Highest peak outside the Southern Alps
  7. ^ a b In the Inland Kaikoura Range
  8. ^ Highest peak on the North Island
  9. ^ a b Brodrick Peak and Mount Mannering are equally high summits separated by the 2,400 m Whataroa Saddle (269 m drop)
