About New Zealand

Kia ora and welcome to magical Aotearoa!

2017_About NZ

Internationally-renowned for our stunning landscapes, lush forests and incredible wildlife, New Zealand has fast become one of the world's top tourist destinations - and a wonderful place to live!  As a people, New Zealanders are known for their warm and vibrant personalities; we treasure our easy-going lifestyle and place a high value on relationships.

New Zealand has a temperate and sub-tropical climate.  Unlike many other countries, changes in season do not bring extreme changes in the temperature - so you can enjoy 'the great outdoors' all year round in New Zealand! 

Whether you love rugged alpine landscapes or sunny, white-sand beaches, New Zealand has it all!  Our forests pulsate with life, playing host to an array of native flora and fauna.  It is no surprise that we have become a favourite location for Hollywood film directors. 

Although we are a relatively small nation (only 4.5 million people), each region of New Zealand has its own sense of local identity and character.  As a multi-cultural society, we love to celebrate both our similarities and differences. It is this appreciation of diversity which has created the warm and welcoming atmosphere New Zealand has become famous for!

Because we are able to place you with families throughout New Zealand, as an au pair in New Zealand you have the opportunity to journey to the heart of our country and culture.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

E haere ra. Goodbye for now.
