New Zealand’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites stretch across the country. Tongariro National Park is located in the central North Island, Te Wāhipounamu is located in the south-west of the South Island and the Sub-Antarctic Islands are found south of the South Island.
The six stamps in this stamp issue feature two locations from each of these picturesque sites - the Emerald Lakes, Franz Josef Glacier, Enderby Island, Mount Ngauruhoe, Lake MacKenzie and Campbell Island.
