New Zealand Local Information Guide
New Zealand is a tiny country. Made up of two islands (and many smaller ones) and with a population of over four million people, it is not the most acessible place in the world to visit. Yet it remains one of the world's greatest tourist destinations.
With incredible unspoilt scenery. There are some of the most diverse environments on earth, from beaches and rainforests to mountains, lakes, glaciers and even volcanoes. Many of these different natural features can be visited on the same day.
New Zealand has a largely temperate climate. While the far north has subtropical weather during summer, and inland alpine areas of the South Island can be as cold as -10 C in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures, moderate rainfall, and abundant sunshine.
New Zealand has a very unique and dynamic culture. The culture of its indigenous Maori people affects the language, the arts, and even the accents of all New Zealanders. Their place in the South Pacific, and their love of the outdoors, sport, and the arts make New Zealanders and their cultureunique in the world.
New Zealand willl be both memorable and unique. It's a very special place - come and enjoy!
