Welcome to New Zealand
New Zealand is the youngest country on earth - the last major landmass to be discovered. It has a rich and fascinating history, reflecting both our Maori and European heritage. Amazing Maori historic sites and taonga (treasures), some dating back almost a thousand years, are a contrast to many beautiful colonial buildings. A walk around any New Zealand city today shows what a culturally diverse and fascinating country we have become.
A safe haven for visitors.
New Zealand has no snakes or dangerous wild animals, making it safe for visitors to enjoy outdoor activities. The biggest danger is falling in love with the animals you will meet on a farm tour, or if you decide to find work on a farm while on a working holiday in New Zealand.

Northern royal albatross at Pukekura/Taiaroa Head on Royal Cam. The nesting area on the headland on the Otago Pensinsula is a sheltered area where summer ground temperatures can reach 50 degrees celsius. After laying their eggs in November, the parents continue to share incubation duties during January and February. Parents take turns to keep the egg warm from two days to three weeks at a time, spending an average of eight days each in the nest.
You'll see the chicks exercise their wings before they depart. They'll start flapping on ground, or holding their wings out facing the wind. This is their first stage of building up muscle strength in their wings. As the chicks become lighter in preparation to fledge, you'll see some brief practice flights, where they'll hovering above the ground in the colony. This helps them learn how to take off and land.
