New Zealand Map

New Zealand Map...

New Zealand consist of three main islands in the South Pacific Ocean, the North, South and Stewart Islands covering an area of approximately 268,000 square kilometres and having a population of over 4 million people of mainly European, Maori and Polynesian blood. For all its small size however, New Zealand is a land full of contrasting scenic beauty which makes it unique in the world. High mountains, low plains, fiords, forests, glaciers and roaring rivers abound, most within a short distance of the towns and cities. It is a sportsman's paradise in which any outdoor sport can be accommodated. As New Zealanders say it is "God's Own Country".
