* Fact The Kermadec Islands are the summits of large volcanoes that have been built up on the crest of the Kermadec Ridge, and have emerged above sea level. The ridge stretches for 600 to 700 km north-north-east from about 33½oS 180o to about 28oS 178oW (Figure 1), and has been upraised, as already mentioned, by the ongoing collision between the Pacific and Australian plates.
