At Wellington Harbor, New Zealand

In the last week my husband and I were in the North Island of New Zealand (we live in Massachusetts).

It seems that no one there collects sea glass; indeed, on the South Island the week before, we were speaking with a sea-side glass blower who was just confused by my questions about where to look--clearly thought it was trash.

We found pounds of pieces on one beach in the Wellie harbor loop.

No Waves
by: Anonymous

Please note that Wellington is in an essentially landlocked bay and has zero waves.

The beach glass is therefore not tumbled at all.

We need some photos of the glass in New Zealand :)

Hi all you Kiwis! Lin and I (David) are asking for your help.

We know there has got to be some great places to find sea glass on your fabulous islands.

Can you share some photos of what you've found?

We would all just love to see whatever you can post. To post, just upload to one of our forum pages.
