New Zealand Rainbow

New Zealand, AUSTRALIA

New Zealand might look small on a world map, but it’s jam-packed with places to see. Located in the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is made up of two main islands. The North Island is home to the majority of New Zealand’s four million people. It’s known for its beaches, islands, volcanoes and geothermal areas, and for showcasing our Maori heritage. The North Island’s major cities, Auckland and Wellington, are exciting hubs of culture, cuisine and nightlife. The South Island is famous for its dramatic landscapes and wildlife. The Southern Alps stretch almost the length of the island, sheltering glaciers and alpine lakes, not to mention world class ski fields. Our incredible ‘sunken mountains’ of Fiordland and the Marlborough Sounds are easily explored by boat, while Kaikoura takes the prize for whale watching. And way down south you’ll find the untamed island of Rakiura (aka Stewart Island), a true haven of native wildlife.
