About New Zealand
New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful. Comparable in size to Great Britain, Colorado or Japan, New Zealand has a population of only 4 million, making it one of the world’s least crowded countries. It is a haven for those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, but is also a playground for thrill seekers, hunters, fishermen and adventurers.
English is the common language spoken
New Zealand’s unit of currency is the dollar (NZ$). Foreign currency is easily exchanged at Banks, Hotels and Bureau de Change kiosks.
New Zealand is now home to a diverse range of cultures but was originally a blend of Maori and early British descendants due to its isolated south pacific location. Because of this isolation New Zealand's arts and language have been influenced by the indigenous Maori culture and we are a nation world renowned for our "Kiwi ingenuity."
New Zealand has four distinct seasons:
Summer -December to February
Autumm -March to May
Winter -June to August
Spring -September to November
