Niue - Postally Used Stamps
Niue is located between Cook Islands, Tonga and American Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean. See the map on Cook Islands in my previous posting.
You can order Niue stamps from New Zealand Post online store at:
Below are Niue profile written by NZ Post:
Nestled in the heart of the South Pacific lies an undiscovered piece of paradise: the sublime, unspoilt, tropical island of Niue. Home to just 1,500 people, Niue offers visitors a unique getaway destination – a breathtaking combination of virgin rainforest, tiny swimming coves and spectacular snorkeling, diving and deep-sea fishing experiences.
Niue also has a strong connection with New Zealand. One of the world’s smallest self-governing states, it operates in ‘free association’ with New Zealand, and most Niueans now live in New Zealand (about 20,000 are Niuean born or of direct Niuean descent). It’s a bond that has endured in various forms for more than 100 years – and one that continues to unite the two nations today.
