Cape Runaway is the eastern extremity of the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand's North Island. It is located 90 kilometres northeast off Whakatane and 50 kilometres west of East Cape. The name Cape Runaway was bestowed by English mariner James Cook during his first voyage of discovery in 1769. It was so named after Māori in canoes who had approached Cooks' ship Endeavour in a hostile manner scurried off after a cannon shot was fired.
The Whangaparaoa River is a river of the Gisborne Region of New Zealand's North Island. It flows northwest from the Raukumara Range to reach the Whangaparaoa Bay, an indentation in the far east of the Bay of plenty, five kilometres south of Cape Runaway.
