New Zealand (or Aotearoa as the locals call it) is unique. Whether you're talking about the landscape, wildlife, culture or the people we offer a kind of experience that you cannot get anywhere else in the world.
Our landscapes are considered some of the most diverse in the world, from snowy mountains and rugged bush to golden beaches and crystal clear lakes.
New Zealand is a cultural melting pot. We celebrate our indigenous Maori heritage and have strong ties to our neighbours across the ditch (Australia), the Pacific Islands and Asia. This naturally accepting nature of New Zealanders (or 'Kiwis' as we call ourselves) means we are a pretty laid back and friendly bunch.
Even though we are a tiny little nation of four and half million people (but 40 million sheep!) our cities have everything that you would expect in other major metropolitan areas such as great restaurants, even better shopping, events, activities and all that other fun stuff.
