Swamp Forest was taken in an area known as Ship Creek, 20km (12 miles) north of Haast in South Westland in the South Island. It is a striking landscape, where rugged and immense bush-clad mountains and valleys unfold to become the wild and windswept coastline facing the Tasman Sea.
Haast is located in an area known as Te Wāhipounamu South West New Zealand, a World Heritage area.
Kahikatea is a species of forest tree found only in New Zealand. They grow to heights of 60 metres or more and can live for more than 500 years. Swamp forests such as the one in this image are often home to birds, as well as fish and eels.
