According to Gisborne District Council, mud volcanoes are uncommon in New Zealand, but there are a number of them in the Tairawhiti region.
"In our region, mud volcanoes occur from the Hangaroa Valley in the south to near East Cape in the north," said GDC's integrated catchments manager Dr. Murry Cave, as reported by the Gisborne Herald.
Although the eruption doesn’t appear to be associated with any significant seismic shaking, the GNS researchers together with their Imperial College (UK) colleagues installed sensitive seismographs in the area last summer as part of the Hikurangi margin project, hoping the data may help provide a better understanding of mud volcanoes.
