New Zealand is situated in the South Pacific Ocean 6500 kms south-southwest of Hawaii and 1900 km to the east of Australia. With a land area of 268,000 sq km it is similar in size to Japan or Britain. It is comprised of two main adjacent islands, the North Island and South Island, and a number of small outlying islands.
New Zealand has a population of just over four million. More than one million people live in Auckland in the North Island. The capital city is Wellington, situated at the southern tip of the North Island. Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island.
Over half of New Zealand's total land area is pasture and arable land, and more than a quarter is under forest cover. It is predominantly mountainous and hilly, with 13% of the total area consisting of alpine terrain, including many peaks exceeding 3000 metres. Lakes and rivers cover 1% of the land. The climate is temperate and relatively mild.
