Kaumira is Mount Nimrod's other name, named after the great Maori Chief and outdoorsman Te Kaumira.

Te Kaumira considered the area his favourite of all hunting grounds and according to Maori mythlogy, Kaumira sheltered here during a snowstorm where they say he remains today, as the guardian of the land in the form of the 5,003 foot Mount Nimrod.

If that's the case then Stravon (& Shackleton's for that matter), is proud to be under his watchful eye.


Whaia koe e te kahurangi.
Mehemea kia tuoho koe
He mauka teitei.

Seek the treasures of the heart.
If you wish to bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.
