An interesting account of how New Zealand was formed millions of years ago largely due to the movement of tectonic plates and the joining together of pre-existing islands. This movement created the impressive mountain ranges still evident in New Zealand today.

Proving even today that our mountains are constantly changing thanks to movement by tectonic plates.
