    Do they mean Wellington Island, or Wellington, New Zealand which is not an island but is on the North Island of New Zealand and would fit with the description of the decay being between Australia and New Zealand?  I note however that Wellington Island is at 49 South so it might be conceivable.
    
    
    I am not currently able to analyse the trajectory so perhaps someone else could to see whether Wellington Island makes sense or not.
