Day 15

We were walking from Tamarama to Bondi this afternoon and Will asked how far away New Zealand was, "was it like 1000 km's away, so if I had some super binoculars I could see people on the beach over there?".  Stumped me that one!

Well, he wasn't far off....
The closest point between Australia and New Zealand is near the Resolution Island lighthouse in Fiordland which is a distance of approximately 1491kms from Tasman Island lighthouse in Tasmania.  The distance between Sydney and Auckland  is 2153kms.
