About New Zealand

Kia Ora, Welcome to New Zealand.

New Zealand (Māori: Aotearoa) land of the long white cloud, truly is one of the most picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of just over 4.5 million people, New Zealand is made up of two major landmasses the North Island and the South Island and a number of smaller islands including Stewart Island located in the south-western Pacific Ocean. The two main islands are divided by the Cook Strait (a 22km stretch of water). Wellington is New Zealands capital and located on the North Island with a population of 393,600 people. Auckland is New Zealand largest city with a population of 1,413,700 people.

New Zealand is situated around 1,500 kilometres east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres south of the Pacific island areas of Fiji, New Caledonia and Tonga. Due to its remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand was one of the last countries to be found and settled.

The country is made up of some of the worlds most spectacular landscapes, from vast mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes to sweeping coastlines. It is a natural playground for thrills seekers and adventurers and those who simply want to visit for the culture and sceneries. Its unique wildlife, found nowhere else on earth is breathtaking. New Zealand is known to be relaxed with a focus on enjoying the outdoors.
