• New Zealand is situated
  midway between the
  Equator and the South
  Pole in the southern
  Pacific Ocean.
• Its   nearest   western
  neighbour is Australia.
• New      Zealand       is
  separated from Australia
  by the Tasman Sea.
• The area of the country
  is about 270,000 sq km.
• It is a small, quiet and
  green country, which
  consists of two large
  islands – the North

  Island, and numerous
  small islands.
• The two main islands are
  separated   by    Cook
  Strait.
Three fourths of New

That is where you
can     find    active
volcanoes,       many
rivers and lakes,
numerous       mineral
hot    springs    and
geysers, subtropical
forests and sandy
beaches.
The South Island is
larger than the North
Island and has the
highest mountains. The
chief mountain range of
the South Island is the
Southern Alps.
Sometimes people say

New Zealand was settled over 1,000 years ago by
   voyagers from East Polynesia. These settlers
       were the ancestors of today’s Maori.
                Europeans first came in 1642.
                Dutchman Abel Tasman was
                the first European navigator to
                visit the islands.

and claimed the land for the
British crown.

  is about the same
  size as Great Britain
  or Japan, it is not as

  people.
