NEW ZEALAND – The Kiwi Land, 100% Pure

New Zealand is a welcoming, diverse country with a history of Māori, European, Pacific Island, and Asian immigration. This rich blend of cultures, combined with geologically fascinating landscapes and unique flora and fauna, make New Zealand an exciting country to explore.

New Zealand can be mellow or action-packed, but it's always epic.

New Zealanders are friendly and down-to-earth people who embrace the spirit of manaakitanga, or hospitality. The name 'kiwi' comes from the curious little flightless bird that is unique to New Zealand.

Māori people have always held the kiwi bird in high regard. Their feathers were used to make 'kahu kiwi', valuable cloaks worn by tribal chiefs. In the early 1900s, cartoonists started to use images of the kiwi bird to represent New Zealand as a country.

During the First World War, New Zealand soldiers were referred to as 'kiwis', and the nickname stuck. Eventually, the term Kiwi was attributed to all New Zealanders, who proudly embraced the moniker. Just like the bird, New Zealanders are unique, adaptable and a little quirky.

Key Cities

You'll find a variety of awesome landscapes in New Zealand, all within easy reach of each other.

Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches - it’s all here.

Lying in the south-west Pacific, New Zealand consists of two main islands - the North Island, which has a 'spine' of mountain ranges running through the middle, with gentle rolling farmland on both sides, the central North Island is dominated by the Volcanic Plateau and the South Island, which has the Southern Alps as its backbone. To the east of the Southern Alps is the rolling farmland of Otago and Southland, and the vast, flat Canterbury Plains. Stewart Island and many smaller islands lie offshore.

Māori culture is an integral part of life in New Zealand, influencing everything from cuisine to customs, and language. Māori are the tangata whenua, the indigenous people, of New Zealand. They came here more than 1000 years ago from their mythical Polynesian homeland of Hawaiki.

Today, one in seven New Zealanders identify as Māori. Their history, language and traditions are central to New Zealand’s identity.

Taste your way around New Zealand, and you'll discover food and wine that's original, world-class, and fresh from the source. New Zealand food goes way beyond fish and chips and barbeques – the NZ chefs have developed a distinct Pacific Rim cuisine. Expect to indulge in plenty of seafood (like greenlipped mussels, crayfish (lobster), Bluff oysters and fresh fish), award winning cheeses and of course our famous lamb. You should also expect a laidback, friendly atmosphere wherever you eat; Kiwis love to keep things casual.

Get ready for mammoth national parks, dynamic Māori culture, and world-class surfing and skiing at New Zealand.
