Land

Discovered by Polynesian Maoris in AD 800, New Zealand is a group of islands in the southern Pacific Ocean. Lying over 2,000km (1,250 miles) to the south-east of Australia, it comprises two main islands namely North Island and South Island as well as numerous smaller islands.

The main cities are Auckland, Wellington (the capital), Christchurch and Dunedin. Wellington is the southernmost capital in the world. Auckland is the largest city in the country. The indigenous Māori language name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, commonly translated as “The Land of the Long White Cloud”. For many years, the land has often been called “God’s Own Country” by New Zealanders and visitors alike.

With majestic mountain ranges, sweeping plains, fjords, imposing native forests, crystal clear inland lakes, miles of golden sand beaches and numerous bays dotted around one of the longest coastlines in the world. The natural beauty of the mountains, rivers and beaches leaves one spellbound.

Climate
New Zealand has mild temperatures, moderately high rainfall, and many hours of sunshine throughout most of the country. New Zealand's climate is dominated by two main geographical features: the mountains and the sea. Most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures, moderate rainfall, and abundant sunshine.
 

Due to its location in the Southern Hemisphere, the average temperature decreases as you travel south. The north of New Zealand is subtropical and the south temperate. The warmest months are December, January and February, and the coldest June, July and August. In summer, the average maximum temperature ranges between 20 - 30ºC and in winter between 10 - 15ºC.
