The Chatham Islands form an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean about southeast of mainland New Zealand. It consists of about ten islands within a radius, the largest of which are Chatham Island and Pitt Island.

The archipelago is called 'Rekohu' ("misty sun") in the indigenous language Moriori, and 'Wharekauri' in Māori. It has officially been part of New Zealand since 1842, and includes the country's easternmost point, the Forty-Fours.
