Yes, should be Whanganui. (Dialect difference in Maori confused the spelling for many years).

Do you come from the Bay of Plenty? Do you know the Marlborough Man? The West Coast girls are really hip. Nelson and Tasman. Northland and Southland are easy to remember, unless they are territories or provinces. I didn't get any. I could have got Aukland and Wellington. Christchurch would have failed. Its a city. I think

Accept East Cape for Gisborne. Gisborne is the city, East Cape the region

According to Wikipedia, 'Gisborne' (named after the city) is the correct name for the region, but though the region is often referred to as 'East Cape', the name actually specifically refers to the northeastern extremity and not the region as a whole. The same goes for 'East Coast' and 'Eastland', which also, despite being commonly used to refer to the region, actually refer to different areas.

I'd say all but Gisborne and Hawke's Bay is pretty impressive for an Australian, right? It's not like the regions hold the same significance as states.

0/16, I can only divide NZ into North and South Island and neither one is a part of this quiz.
