New Zealand is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, consisting of two principal islands – North Island and South Island – as well as numerous smaller islands. Historically, New Zealand has had an Antarctic presence since 1839 (the discovery of the Balleny Islands), and this still exists today in the form of Balleny Islands, Ross and Scott, and the Co-Administrative Areas of Transantarctica.
