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.

That's true, but those Antarctic territories are not fully recognised internationally, so it does make some sense.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, as my poultry cooking friend says, Macquarie Island, Australia's southernmost point, is farther south than any part of the NZ. Southernmost point in NZ is Jacquemart Island in the Campbell Island group about 700 km south of Invercargill at 52.5°S. Macquarie Island, Tasmania is about 1500 km south of Hobart at 54.6°S.

Something has to be wrong with the answers to "Lowest human exposure to air pollution". In the quiz "Countries that Beat Canada", the highest scoring countries for the exact same question are Finland, Brunei, New Zealand, Sweden and Canada itself.
