    New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. Wellington's dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island's Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" films.
