The Southern Alps lie predominately on the west coast of the South Island. However, Kaikoura is the only part of New Zealand where the Southern Alps reach the east coast. Pictured is the Kaikoura Peninsula with the Southern Alps behind. This mountainous part of New Zealand is earthquake prone with Kaikoura recently enduring a 7.8 magnitude earthquake with thousands of aftershocks
