Both Henry and William Williams, early missionaries in the Bay of Islands, took a keen interest in geological features, and often guided visiting naturalists around the area. This pencil sketch of the Haururu Falls on the Waitangi River is attributed to Henry Williams who lived in the region from 1823 until his death in 1867. The waterfall is caused by a thick lava flow, and is an accessible tourist attraction today.
