Island Highlights

Islands are scattered all around the edges of New Zealand's coastline. Some are no bigger than a tennis court, others are the size of a small country. They're hideaways for rare bird species or escape hatches for city dwellers. Many are protected from development or habitation, so that they can be enjoyed in their most natural state.
