Imagine a place where underwater volcanoes, a deep sea trench, and extraordinary temperate and tropical marine life all exist together.

Welcome to the Kermadecs, one of the world's last great wilderness areas.

Located between New Zealand's North Island and Tonga, the 15 islands and rocks of the Kermadecs are remote and rarely visited. From these islands, to the waters surrounding them, and the deep trench below, the Kermadecs is a place for exploration and
discovery.

The Kermadec region is home to whales and dolphins, sea birds, fish and deep sea marine life, and has some of the most geologically active and biologically unusual features on the planet.

The Kermadec region is significant to New Zealand and the world. It provides an important safe haven for threatened species, and an underwater frontier that scientists are only now beginning to explore.
