About New Zealand

New Zealand is an island in Oceania in the South Pacific Ocean. It’s southeast of Australia, which is separated by the Tasman Sea.

The terrain in New Zealand is mostly mountainous with large coastal plains. It’s the converging Australian and Pacific tectonic plates that have sculpted these mountain chains like the Southern Alps.

The tallest mountain in New Zealand is Mount Cook, which stands at an enormous 3,724 meters in height. Because of its tectonic movement, the risk of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity is high.

Fun Fact: There are about six sheep for every person in New Zealand.
