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.

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

To Sarah, 323 or whatever, that's exactly what I've been saying all along. You hit the nail on the head. And to that other git, Billy Ben, I read an article that clearly stated that a good many Britons (I won't say poms) are moving to New Zealand *in droves* and they are moving to Australia too*in droves* so pull your head in on your comments. And it is actually many of you people who smell. I couldn't give a fuck one way or the other whether you like NZ or not, but if you are going to speak about it speak the TRUTH.
I've said my piece. There are some people in every country who think New Zealand is a pile of shit, but they really do not know what they are talking about. The same applies in reverse and it must stop.
