New Zealand on the World Map
Click on the New Zealand
map to see a topographical view.
New Zealand is considered
to be the most isolated country in the world in a geographical sense. New
Zealand is on the opposite side of Greenwich Mean Time (GMt) which makes New
Zealand the first country in the world to see each new day. This means the
country is 12 hours ahead of England, and 24 hours ahead of some of the nearby
Pacific Islands due to the International Date being nearby. If you were able
to travel from New Zealand through the centre of the earth, and continued
to the otherside, you would find yourself in and area between North Africa
and Southern England depending where in New Zealand you were.
