The Kermadec Islands are a subtropical island arc in the South Pacific Ocean 800–1,000 km (500–620 mi) northeast of New Zealand's North Island, and a similar distance southwest of Tonga. The Kermadec group includes four main islands; Raoul Island, Macauley Island Curtis and Nugent Islands. The Marine Reserve offers amazing dive opportunities.
The Islands are a tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests ecoregion. There are no native land mammals, however the islands are still known for their bird life, and seabird colonies presently inhabit offshore islets. Visits to the islands are generally restricted to those engaged in scientific study of the islands.
