The two main islands are divided by a 22km stretch of water called the Cook Strait.
New Zealand is located approximately 1,500 km east of Australia and about 1,000 km from the Pacific Islands. Due to its relative remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand was one of the last countries to be found and settled.
