New Zealand is an island nation in the South West Pacific Ocean. Because of our remoteness we were one of the last lands on earth to be populated. Our land is about the size of California, however there are only just over 4 million of us living there (California, of course, has about 40 million residents).
Due to our long isolation, New Zealand has a distinctive biodiversity of animal and plant life. New Zealand’s incredible scenery made its first real appearance on the world stage through the Lord of the Rings trilogy which made the jaws of filmgoers around the globe drop. We have so much more to offer than what was fitted into the scenes of the movie however. We have wonderful sand dunes, coastline, and islands as well as mountains, caves and tunnels! One of the things which makes the scenery so special here is how few people are around. You can enjoy many beautiful beaches, coves, forests and mountain ranges without a bunch of other people around.
Our culture is one that enjoys the outdoors and values a relaxed and healthy lifestyle. In the evenings and weekends we love playing sports, going for walks and enjoying outdoor BBQs. We know we’re blessed to have such a beautiful country and so despite being known for our relaxed, informal and laid back nature, we do get fired up about protecting our natural environment and the pure beauty New Zealand has to offer. Luckily for us our unspoilt natural environment is part of what gives us such amazing quality, fresh food.
