New Zealand is a former British colony located in the South Pacific Ocean. The majority of population is of European descent but the Maori minority is quite significant.
New Zealand consists of two major islands and several smaller ones.
The North Island is home to beautiful beaches, lush forests, active volcanoes, all creating very interesting scenery. The most important towns on North Island are Auckland and Wellington.

Stewart Island is a forested paradise where you can see a lot of native wildlife and the only place in the world where you can admire the kiwi bird sun-bathing on beach.
The Chatman Islands are home to rear birds and plants. The islands are of volcanic origin and the transport to the island is restricted: you can only board a flight if you can prove you have confirmed accommodation and transport on the islands.
These islands are reserved for scientists. Due to their remoteness the islands are now wildlife preserves.
