                                           New Zealanders (informally known as Kiwis) are
                                           down-to-earth and friendly, and our lifestyle is relaxed,
                                           with a passion for the outdoors. ‘Kiwi ingenuity’ helps
                                           this small country achieve big things.

                                           With a history of Māori, European, Pacific Island and Asian cultures, New Zealand has
                                           become a melting-pot population.

                                           Over three-quarters of the population live in the North Island, with one-third
                                           living in Auckland. The other main cities of Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and
                                           Dunedin are where the majority of the remaining Kiwis dwell.

                                           There are many things to experience here, from wide open spaces, unique nature and
                                           wildlife, to adventure tourism and thriving cities.

                                         and Wanaka with activities such as skiing, jet-boating, mountain
