Campbell Island, New Zealand

Campbell Island (Motu Ihupuku) is a remote, sub-Antarctic island of New Zealand and the main island of the Campbell Island group. It covers 112.68 km² of the group's 113.31 km² and is surrounded by numerous stacks, rocks and islets like Dent Island, Folly Island (or Folly Islands), Isle de Jeanette Marie, and Jacquemart Island, the latter being the southernmost extremity of New Zealand. The Island is mountainous, rising to over 500 metres in the south. A long fjord, Perseverance Harbour, nearly bisects it, exiting to the sea on the east coast.
