Discover New Zealand with this Map of New Zealand
Located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, New Zealand consists of two main islands (North Island and South Island) as well as a number of smaller islands, the most notable being Stewart Island to the south of South Island, and the Chatham Islands lying to the east of South Island.
The Maori name for New Zealand is "Aotearoa", meaning "the land of the long white cloud", which is most likely a reference to the abundant rainfall that the country experiences. The capital city, Wellington, is located on the southwestern tip of North Island, with its largest city, Auckland, situated on the Gauraki Gulf shore of North Island. We hope that the map of New Zealand on this page will give you further insight into this beautiful, but isolated, country.
