An all right country, as far as I'm concerned. I'm Australian and no matter what I'll always love Australia 1000 times more than NZ, because we're a sunburnt country, Tourists may say NZ has far prettier scenery but you have to be Auzzie to understand the beauty of an orange desert meeting a clear deep blue sky. Also most tourists are from green countries, so seeing a beautiful untouched NZ forrest would seem far more appealing than a culture shock from grey green dry bush of Australia (which may I add is 1000 times better than an NZ forrest- lol). But thats my opinion.
I think it's cool that you guys have developed a culture of your own- like the haka (I still giggle when I see it though-lol). But don't say Australians haven't, our culure is fun loving and bbqs, some may say that anywhere in the world has that, but Australias will always be better.
I know NZ celebrities get labled as Auzzie, but to tell you the truth I think it's because the media is too stupid to know the difference so they chose the better known country.
Also, do not say Australia is rasist, I am half Phillipino and have never had a hurtful comment. Other than the occasional 'Phillipino driver' joke, but I like the way we joke about ourselves and if anyone finds that offensive- well losen up.
I don't mind NZ but Australia has the better accent!!! LOL.
Say it with me "I would like to have six fish" not "I would like to have sex fush"
Why can't New Zealanders say the letter 'i'?

A beautiful country located in the south pacific ocean. Also known as the land of the long white cloud, New Zealand is diverse and offers adventure, culture and majority of Kiwi's are easy going and friendly.
I love (New Zealand)

A pretty darn groovy country which by reputation pushes well above it's weight. Rolling green hills,vast golden beaches ,dramatic volcanic plateau(sp?), snow capped mountains, majestic rainforests, towering fiords-New Zealand personifies diversity, both in appearance and communtity, with a fine mix of Maori (indigenous people), Pakeha( White people), Pacific islanders and and many more. People are reputedly amoungst the freindliest in the world and as said the lifestyle easy very chilled-although it has to be said the stereotype of kiwis being backwards is a complete myth. As a nation we're thoroughly commited, hard working, open minded and optimistic. Yes, we have a habit of travelling and extending our OE as it were but in hindsight we're not the bad

Tis also known to be the neighbour of Australia, and contrary to all the crap posted on this page, the anzac alliance still holds strong yet some people take this 'freindly squabbling' to extremities.

Kia Ora

Being a kiwi ain't so bad infact it aint so bad at all.....I love New Zealand

New Zealand is a pretty awesome country. Why is Australia being mentioned so much when these definitions are about NZ? *confused*

I guess it's because we're close, yes that's right... we are close enough that we might as well join together to be one country {If it wasn't for you people getting really crazy over what country is better}

Both Australia and New Zealand have their good point and their bad points :)
So chill, people-

PS- Sheep Sex? That's just wrong... beastiality is so wrong...

--New Zealand and Australia would both be stronger if the people of both contries worked together--

A place where many, many people would like to go.... Reason why: It's beautiful, and Lord of the Rings was filmed there.

New Zealand. The Land of the Long White Cloud. Home to 4 million people. It is greener than most countries but I wouldn't call it "clean and green". It is actually a really active and fun place, we should be advertising that instead of clean and green.

The best city's are:

Auckland (if you want to be submerged in traffic and things to do).

Wellington (the capital - advisable to try to ignore the existance of the beehive, and visit the National Museum and generally enjoy the nightlife and cafe's, film festivals,etc.)

Christchurch and Dunedin: A must see for people from the UK in fact you should skip Wellington and Auckland and go there first. It has lots of historical buildings and it has a friendly European feel to it.

Queenstown: The overpriced, adventure capital of the world; a must go if you can afford it.

On Australia and New Zealand:

Relations are equal to that of Canada and the United States. Australia is economically more powerful and dominates a lot of the New Zealand market. It upsets a lot of people, as we see the "great New Zealand buy up". Also the treatment of aborigines is also a sour point, but all in all due to the ANZAC tradition from WW1 relations are good.

Should you visit?

1. NZ is costly
2. It has lots to do
3. It has a nice environment
4. It is out of the way
5. You can lose yourself
