New Zealand is a nation of beautiful, unique scenery that visitors fall in love with day after day. It’s the same for so many of us who get to call Aotearoa home.
With just under five million people, ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’ has plenty of space. It has plenty of vibrancy too, with Auckland and Wellington being two of New Zealand’s many cities that always have something exciting happening, no matter your tastes.
If you love being near water, then New Zealand is paradise as you’re never too far from a beach. In summer, Mount Maunganui and spots in Coromandel are particularly popular, while if you love great surfing conditions Taranaki is one of your options.
The South Island is a magnificent landscape that has featured in many films, including the blockbuster movies of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. With snow-capped mountains, rivers and the natural wonder that is Milford Sound, the South Island has some of the world’s most stunning views.
It also has abundant adrenalin adventure activities, with Queenstown being the action heartbeat of the country. One other great aspect to life in New Zealand is the seasons, with them being distinctive whichever island you’re in.
From the peace and tranquillity of the great outdoors, to the buzz of the inner-city, New Zealand is understandably a country on many people’s bucket-lists.
