OVERVIEW OF NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand is a land of great contrasts and diversity. Spectacular caves, deep glacier lakes, active volcanoes, lush valleys, stunning fjords, long sandy beaches, and the spectacular snow-capped peaks of the Southern Alps, etc., all contribute to New Zealand’s scenic beauty. New Zealand also has a unique array of vegetation and animal life, much of which developed during the country’s prolonged isolation.
With a collaged history of Māori, European, Pacific Island and Asian cultures, New Zealand has become a melting-pot population – but one with some uniting features that makes it unique in the world.
