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.

Kind sir, as it happens, I'm a Canadian myself, and many Canadians I know, are quite fond of Kiwis and of New Zealand. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't we in Canada living under America's shadow, (although this is a very mature and fine nation albeit not home to some of the best people). I do agree however that New Zealand is suffering from a higher instance, "little brother syndrome" all right? A lot like us at one point although we are overcoming it. New Zealand also suffers from a "cultural cringe" and yes is far from perfect, but as opposed to a low economy, NZ is actually doing relatively well, given it's isolation and what have you. I completely refute any reference to "sheep shagging" although to be fair, there are probably a minority of people in NZ who need to root them. And yes New Zealand lacks confidence in itself point taken, and there is a lot of catching up to do in this area, but there was a time when Canada lacked confidence in itself and some would argue, still do.

Have a good day!

New Zealand is a great country in most ways whom many Canadians love dearly.
