Boulder Bank

Naturally formed landform in Nelson, New Zealand. It is a 13 kilometre long stretch of rocky substrate which begins at the Mackay Bluff and ends at the Cut of the Nelson Harbour. Haulashore Island was once part of the Boulder Bank, but the Cut made it an island, and it is no longer connected to the Boulder Bank. The Cut was done between 1903-1905 to allow for increased port operations.
