New Zealand is comprised of two main islands, the North Island in the north, and (strangely enough) the South Island in the south. There are also many many other islands dotted around, the largest being Stewart Island, at the very southern tip of the South Island.
As you look around, you will notice that New Zealand place names are hardly th most inventive. Along with the "North Island" and the "South Island", the province on the western coast of the South Island is called the "West Coast", and the northern and southernmost provinces are called "Northland" and "Southland" respectively.
