New Zealand - Map Card (1)
NEW ZEALAND consists of three main islands in the South Pacific Ocean, the North, South and Stewart Islands, covering an area of approximately 268,000 km square and having a population of over 4 million people of mainly Maori, European and Polynesian blood.
For all its small size however, New Zealand is a land full of 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 sportsmen favorite in which any outdoor sport can be accomodated. All New Zealanders' say it is God's Own Country.
