Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
NEW ZELAND is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean comprising two main landmasses (the North Island and the South Island) and numerous smaller islands. The country is situated some 1,500 kilometers (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea, and roughly 1,000 kilometers (600 mi) south of the Pacific island nations of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Due to its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation New Zealand developed a distinctive fauna dominated by birds, many of which became extinct after the arrival of humans and introduced mammals. With a mild maritime climate, the land was mostly covered in forest. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks owe much to the uplift of land and volcanic eruptions caused by the Pacific and Indo-Australian Plates clashing underfoot.

New Zealand is made up of two main islands and a number of smaller islands, located near the centre of the water hemisphere. The main North and South Islands are separated by the Cook Strait, 22 kilometers (14 mi) wide at its narrowest point. Besides the North and South Islands, the five largest inhabited islands are Stewart Island, the Chatham Islands, Great Barrier Island (in the Hauraki Gulf), d’Urville Island (in the Marlborough Sounds) and Waiheke Island (about 22 km (14 mi) from central Auckland).

The country owes its varied topography, and perhaps even its emergence above the waves, to the dynamic boundary it straddles between the Pacific and Indo-Australian Plates. New Zealand is part of Zealandia, a micro continent nearly half the size of Australia that gradually submerged after breaking away from the Gondwanan super continent. About 25 million years ago, a shift in plate tectonic movements began to contort and crumple the region. This is now most evident in the Southern Alps, formed by compression of the crust beside the Alpine Fault. Elsewhere the plate boundary involves the subduction of one plate under the other, producing the Puysegur Trench to the south, the Hikurangi Trench east of the North Island, and the Kermadec and Tonga Trenches further north.

RELIGION:
The native Maoris of New Zealand practiced a form of paganism and believed in a pantheon of gods. An all-encompassing faith in Tapu or the sacred was the core of Maori religious philosophy and permeated the lives, conduct, religion and social culture of the Maori. The belie of the Tapu not only provided spiritual and religious refuge but was also the basis of law, regulations, governance and a heightened communal bonding. With the advent of Christianity, the faith in the Tapu weakened and the Maori brotherhood weakened as a result
New Zealand is nominally Christian, and three-fifths of the population adheres to the Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, and Methodist denominations. Minor Protestant sects, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish congregations and Maori adaptations of Christianity make up the rest. Nonetheless, a significant proportion of the population does not claim any religious affiliation.
The Maoris originally followed a polytheistic religion with the main focus being the tapu. Belief in tapu, or the sacred, without a doubt was the most important of all aspects of Maori life and thought, affecting man directly from birth to death. It was a religious belief and condition, and the force, which governed the whole of life, taking the place of law as well as religion.
Christianity not only attacked war and cannibalism, it inevitably weakened the hold of the laws of tapu and of Maori domestic life, and sapped the basis of Maori art and self-expression. In particular, its preaching of the worth and importance of the individual struck at the root of the Maori communal system.

The non-Christian populace includes Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and followers of Paganism and such religions. Surprisingly, a large number of New Zealanders claim to follow no religion at all. Almost 30% of the population did not claim any religious loyalty in the 2001 census. However it has been noted that the growth of non-Christian religions in New Zealand is fast.

CULTURE:
The culture of New Zealand is a heterogeneous mixture of the native Maori culture, European and American influences and impacts of other cultures such as Asian and Arab influences brought in by travelers and settlers. The culture of New Zealand is vibrant and ever evolving and the natives are open to experimenting and innovations in every walk of life. Arts and Crafts in New Zealand are a huge attraction for the tourist. Be it Maori craft items such as flax textiles or wood and stone carvings or the more contemporary oil and water color paintings, the coveted souvenirs of New Zealand are collectors' items treasured worldwide. Architecture of New Zealand too has evolved from the crude Moari structures to architectural marvels of current days. A period of research and experimentation has brought in finesse into the architectural style of New Zealanders that has been lauded by the world. Music and Dance in New Zealand is a rich admixture of ancient Maori music, folk music and the current western trends such as rock and hip hop.
New Zealand Cuisine consists of dishes made from fresh indigenously available ingredients, with a high emphasis on seafood. Most of the natives of New Zealand are Christians and an astonishingly high number of citizens are atheists. Read more in the section Religion in New Zealand. Here is our guide to New Zealand Etiquette - a complete list of do s and don't s when in New Zealand.

The largely rural life in early New Zealand led to the image of New Zealanders being rugged, industrious problem solvers. Modesty was expected and enforced through the "tall poppy syndrome", where high achievers received harsh criticism. At the time New Zealand was not known as an intellectual country. From the early 20th century until the late 1960s Māori culture was suppressed by the attempted assimilation of Māori into British New Zealanders. In the 1960s, as higher education became more available and cities expanded urban culture began to dominate. Even though the majority of the population now lives in cities, much of New Zealand's art, literature, film and humour have rural themes.

CLIMATE:
As a southern hemisphere country, New Zealand’s seasons are the inverse of Europe and North America:
Summer: December - February
Autumn: March - May
Winter: June - August
Spring: September - November

New Zealand has a mild and temperate maritime climate with mean annual temperatures ranging from 10 °C (50 °F) in the south to 16 °C (61 °F) in the north. Historical maxima and minima are 42.4 °C (108.3 °F) in Rangiora, Canterbury and −25.6 °C (−14.08 °F) in Ranfurly, Otago. Conditions vary sharply across regions from extremely wet on the West Coast of the South Island to almost semi-arid in Central Otago and the Mackenzie Basin of inland Canterbury and subtropical in Northland. Of the seven largest cities, Christchurch is the driest, receiving on average only 640 millimeters (25 in) of rain per year and Auckland the wettest, receiving almost twice that amount. Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch all receive a yearly average in excess of 2,000 hours of sunshine. The southern and southwestern parts of the South Island have a cooler and cloudier climate, with around 1,400–1,600 hours; the northern and northeastern parts of the South Island are the sunniest areas of the country and receive approximately 2,400–2,500 hours.

Even though New Zealand is located in the South Pacific, at times it is far from tropical! New Zealand’s weather is actually extremely variable – commonly described as “four seasons in one day”. When traveling, it is important to carry clothing to suit any condition – from rain to hail to snow. Layering your clothing is a good option – frosty mornings often turn into warm, sunny days.
Weather conditions also differ depending on which part of the country you are in. The north of the North Island is sub-tropical – with warm humid weather. The south of the South Island, on the other hand, is the first port of call for Antarctic blasts. This unique climate makes New Zealand one of the most picturesque and diverse countries in the world – alpine ranges, tropical rainforests and golden beaches, all in one compact place!

LANGUAGE:
English is the predominant language in New Zealand, spoken by 98 percent of the population. New Zealand English is similar to Australian English and many speakers from the Northern Hemisphere are unable to tell the accents apart. After the Second World War, Māori were discouraged from speaking their own language (te reo Māori) in schools and workplaces and it existed as a community language only in a few remote areas. It has recently undergone a process of revitalization, being declared one of New Zealand's official languages in 1987, and is spoken by 4.1 percent of the population. There are now Māori language immersion schools and two Māori Television channels, the only nationwide television channels to have the majority of their prime-time content delivered in Māori. Many places have officially been given dual Maori and English names in recent years. Samoan is the most widely spoken non-official language (2.3 percent, followed by French, Hindi, Yue and Northern Chinese.
Te reo Māori and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) are official languages of New Zealand. English, the medium for teaching and learning in most schools, is a de facto official language by virtue of its widespread use. For these reasons, these three languages have special mention in The New Zealand Curriculum.
All three may be studied as first or additional languages. They may also be the medium of instruction across all learning areas. Requirements for the teaching of English are outlined in the English learning area section. Guidelines specific to the learning of te reo Māori and NZSL (published separately) provide detailed information for schools that choose to offer them.

CUISINE OF NEPAL:
The Cuisine Of New Zealand is essentially the result of the cosmopolitan influences on the culture and society. Having come a long way from the "Meat and Three Vegetables" fare, sparkle of innovativeness and creativity has been added by the chefs of the country. A number of fresh vegetables, fruits, seafood, meat and poultry products and cereals are included in the delightful dishes that constitute the daily meal in the region. Besides the indigenous Maori fare, a number of culinary influences such as those of Asian countries, Polynesia and European nations have left their impact on the eating habits of New Zealanders. The settlers and travelers of New Zealand have brought in exotic tastes and cooking methods.

Standard New Zealand fare includes one or many of the following dishes:

Meat: Lamb, Pork, Venison, Seafood (such as Crayfish, Bluff Oysters, Mussels, Shellfish such as Pipis and Tuatua) and Colonial Goose
Snacks: Fish and Chips
Vegetables: Sweet Potatoes
Fruits: Kiwifruit, Feijoa and Tamarillo
Dessert: Pavlova, Hokey pokey Ice Cream Lamingtons and Anzac biscuits

The natives of the Maori clan hold traditional feasts called Hangi. The men of the household or whanau dig out a deep pit and line it with live coals and shrubs. The women prepared food in an urn and it was placed in the pit. The pit was sealed with earth and the food slow cooked in the heat. The entire family would eat the meal and make merry.

The wines of New Zealand deserve special mention. The various vineries at Marlborough, Gisborne, Central Otago, Martinborough, Hawkes Bay and Waiheke Island produce among the finest sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot gris and Cabernet Sauvignon in the world The vineyards of Marlborough and Hawkes Bay in New Zealand are especially renowned.

TOUR ATTRACTIONS:
New Zealand has an unlimited range of tourist attractions and activities, located throughout the country. Whether you are looking for adrenaline-pumping adventure, or a relaxing game of golf, there is an activity or attraction to suit everyone's tastes, age, culture and budget in New Zealand.

Even though it has some of the most beautiful and lively cities and tourist attractions in the world. These sites not only play host to descending tourists and curious travelers, they also shield the raw beauty of unexplored regions and unique fests from the rest of the world.

Fro some attractions visitors can able to visit to see the local volcanoes, snow-peaked mountain valleys, deep gorges, fast-flowing rivers, rapids and cascades, geysers, glaciers and beaches, to farms, gardens, leisure parks, casinos, and wine boutiques; New Zealand offers destinations that match up to individual tastes and interests.

Though zoos are popular with families traveling with kids, the 24 National Parks (each with its unique geographical features and distinct wildlife) in New Zealand make for independent vacation plans as well as short excursions from the cities.
