Find Official Names with Macrons

Macrons (eg Waimangō Point) are included in a number of the official New Zealand and Antarctic names assigned by the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB). 

The NZGB Gazetteer can be searched, and downloaded from, for all official names with macrons.

Find out more about the use of macrons in Māori Orthographic Conventions - Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori on the Māori Language Commission website.

The refreshed LINZ website will be live on Monday 3 November.

You’ll still be able to access the same information, but you’ll notice a change in the design and layout of the site.
