Nope. There are some Aussie islets (Bishop and Clerk) that are south of the southermost Kiwi island (Jacquemart)

In case you wonder: Yes, I believe the same until a quick research clarified it

That's a long bow. By that reasoning, many countries have territories on Antarctica, so they'd all be further south also.
+6
Level 50
Mar 19, 2019
That's true, but those Antarctic territories are not fully recognised internationally, so it does make some sense.
+3

Those islands are an integral part of Tasmania. Saying they are not part of Australia is like saying Hawaii is not part of the US.

If Antarctic territory was counted, then no country would be farther south than Australia, since its Antarctic territory stretches to the South Pole (putting it in a tie with Argentina, Chile, NZ, UK, France and Norway). Additionally, "by that reasoning" misses the point - this is not counting external territories, but only those that are an integral part of the country in question. By this measure Bishop and Clerk Islets - which are a part of the state of Tasmania - are inarguably a part of Australia, and place it definitively farther south than anywhere in New Zealand. Naturally this is counterintuitive since NZ's geographic centre and centre of population are far to the south of Australia's.

Why feel bad? Higher costs don't equate to it being expensive for us who live here. We get paid higher wages and have high quality infrastructure and health care so it evens itself out anyway.

Australia has the Macquarie Islands, which are south of New Zealand. No, they are not territories, they are a part of Tasmania.
+1
Level 53
Feb 11, 2022
They're federal external territories. The only sense in which they're "part of Tasmania" is that they're administered by the Antarctic Division, a federal agency which happens to be headquartered in Hobart.
+6
Level 83
May 14, 2022
No, Macquarie Island is legally an integral part of the state of Tasmania. Specifically, it is part of the Huon Valley Council. It has been a Tasmanian State Reserve since 1978. The Australian Antarctic Division has a base there, but does not 'adminster' the island has a whole.
