Te Whanga Lagoon
|Te Whanga Lagoon|
|Basin countries||New Zealand|
|Surface area||150 square kilometres (58 sq mi)|
It is the outflow of several small rivers in the island's hilly south, and drains to the Pacific via gaps in Hanson Bay on the east coast of the island.
It contains many fossilized shark teeth that can be collected from the edges of the lagoon. Over time the lagoon is likely to silt up.
