Cape Reinga (Te Reinga or Te Rerenga Wairua in Māori)is the northwesternmost tip of the Aupouri Peninsula, at the northern end of the North Island of New Zealand. The name of the cape comes from the Māori word 'Reinga', meaning the 'Underworld'. Another Māori name is 'Te Rerenga Wairua', meaning the leaping-off place of spirits. Both refer to the Māori belief that the cape is the point where the spirits of the dead enter the underworld.
