Abstract: New Zealand is a site of active earth deformation. This article outlines areas of major fault activity and where geoditic monitoring is at present being carried out. New Zealand's faulting is different from some other fault areas in the world, in that it does not appear to creep. Instead its movement is less frequent, from 1000 to 20 000 years between movements, but occurring more violently, and only sections of up to 150 km moving at any one time
