One of the most photographed places on the East Cape. A century-old Anglican church stands on a promontory beside the ocean. You can’t miss this lonely church with its steep spire which stands imposingly on a rocky outcrop.

Raukokore's most notable feature is its historic Anglican church, a landmark of the East Cape region, which stands isolated close to the shore of Papatea Bay. The church was named as one of the East Cape/Gisborne region's "101 must-do" sites by the New Zealand Automobile Association.
