New Zealand

DESTINATION

New Zealand is a South Pacific island nation built by immigrants arriving from every corner of the globe. The land mass that comprises New Zealand is believed to have split off from the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana approximately 100 million years ago. For millions of years, the islands served as a pristine paradise for birds. With the arrival of the indigenous Maori people in the mid-10th century followed by the Europeans in the 17th and 18th centuries, many species of native fauna and flora were pushed to the brink of extinction. The Maoris and the Europeans bickered over territory for many years. With the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, New Zealand became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain, a status it has maintained to this date. New Zealand’s capital is Wellington and the nation’s official head of state is the British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. The New Zealand flag consists of the Union Jack (expressing New Zealand’s standing as a member of the British Commonwealth) and the stars of the Southern Cross. New Zealand is known worldwide for its progressive policies addressing the rights of indigenous peoples. The Maori language is one of the official languages of New Zealand and the influence of Maori culture is evident in many facets of New Zealand life and fashion. New Zealanders are known to be highly environmentally aware and efforts are underway throughout the country to keep endemic birds such as the flightless kiwi and pukeko from extinction. The “NZ8 Highways” are travel routes built around specific themes that allow visitors to experience the unique charm of New Zealand in a cohesive fashion. These routes, which include the “Twin Coast Highway” (through Northland) and the “Thermal Explorer Highway” (rich in Maori culture), make tourist travel in New Zealand convenient.
