An extensive view from a high point over Wainui Inlet and Golden Bay, with a promontory in the right foreground, with Maori drying fish (including stingrays and barracuda) on racks, individuals and groups standing and sitting. Tata Beach is at the far left foreground of the picture, at Abel Tasman Point. A cabbage tree is in the left foreground. There are more fish-racks, tents and long canoes, some with masts and sails on the beach below in the foreground, with other Maori. A large European vessel in full sail is near the shore. Two other larger European ships and two smaller are out in the deeper water of the bay. A small island on the right is Taupo Point, which is an island now only at high tide. The other island further away is one of the Tata Islands. The hills in the distance across the water are, to the right, the Wakamarama Range, with Mount Burnett on the far right and the Aorere Valley to the left of it. The highest peak on the left is Parapara Peak, and further to the left are the lower hills near Takaka.
