Jump to: navigation, search

The South Island or Te Waipounamu is the larger of the two major islands of New Zealand, the other being the more populous North Island. It is bordered to the north by Cook Strait, to the west by the Tasman Sea, to the south and east by the Pacific Ocean.

As it has a 33% larger landmass than the North Island, it is often known as the "mainland", however only 23% of New Zealand's 4.5 million inhabitants live in the South Island.
