Australia is often referred to as “Down Under”. Does that make New Zealand “Down Under Down Under”? No way! New Zealand is a world away from its noisy neighbour. Lush green forests, striking mountains, volcanoes, icy glaciers and gorgeous beaches await you in New Zealand. And that’s just the start of it. More about language travel in New Zealand
When the Maoris arrived here around seven hundred and fifty years ago, they discovered an uninhabited Eden with no large predators. Kiwi birds happily waddled around with impunity and are a national icon to this day... New Zealanders are proud to call themselves “Kiwis”. Outside of the cities, much of what the Maori found remains pretty much as they found it.

New Zealand’s natural harmony is mirrored in a liberal and progressive society. Kiwis (the people, not the birds) go out of their way to make guests feel welcome, whether in the towns or the countryside. A “live and let live” spirit is typical throughout the country, whether in the hip quarters of liberal Auckland, the glorious costal garden city of Christchurch or the blissful surrounds of the Abel Tasman National Park. Indigenous Maori culture is part of the mainstream and is celebrated. Auckland in the largest city of Polynesian Diaspora and is home to large Fijian, Samoan and Tongan populations.

People here are active and sporty, so you can try everything from surfing and skiing to bungee jumping or the national favourite: rugby. Or, if you prefer high-brow to high tackles, there is a great arts scene to be explored. When major artists missed New Zealand off their tour itineraries, Kiwis got creative. People here are seriously in to live music and you will find bands playing across the towns and cities every night of the week. At the weekends, Queenstown’s bars and nightclubs are some of the hippest you’ll ever find.
