SUB-ANTARCTIC ISLANDS

The main island groups within the territory of New Zealand, and usually described as “sub-Antarctic”, are the Auckland and Campbell Islands, almost due south of Stewart Island, and the Antipodes and Bounty Islands farther out to the south-east of it. They all stand above the submarine platform surrounding New Zealand. The Macquarie Islands belonging to Australia are separated from it by deep water.
