Some of New Zealand's top scenic locations feature in New Zealand Post's 2009 Scenic Definitive Stamps issue.

The new 30 cent stamp shows New Zealand's longest wharf at Tolaga Bay on the North Island's east coast. The historic township of Russell, New Zealand's first permanent European settlement and seaport, features on the $1.80 stamp, while the pristine beauty of the country's fourth largest lake, the 192 square kilometre Lake Wanaka, and the surrounding Southern Alps graces the $2.30 stamp.

The Auckland skyline at dusk appears on the $2.80 stamp and the $3.30 stamp captures the picturesque Rakaia River, one of New Zealand's largest braided rivers travelling 150 kilometres to the Pacific Ocean. Wellington's red cable car, set against a backdrop of Wellington Harbour, is on the $4.00 stamp.
