New Zealand - Mapcard (3)
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 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 town and cities. It is a sportsman's paradise in which any outdoor sport can be accomodated. As New Zealander's say it "God's Own Country".
