About New Zealand
Kia ora and welcome to magical Aotearoa!
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.
