A LITTLE INFO ABOUT NZ
New Zealand is an incredibly diverse and unique country located in the southwestern corner of the Pacific Ocean. From its stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage to its wide variety of activities, New Zealand has something for everyone.
History: The indigenous Māori people are believed to have settled in New Zealand around 1250-1300 AD from Polynesia. This marks the beginning of the Māori culture which still plays an important role in today’s society. Abel Tasman was the first European to reach New Zealand in 1642, followed by James Cook who arrived in 1769. In 1840, British sovereignty was established with the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi between Māori chiefs and representatives of Britain’s crown. Consequently, New Zealand became a self-governing colony within the British Empire and eventually achieved full independence as a Dominion in 1907.
Population: As of 2021, New Zealand’s population was estimated at 4,972,000 people. Although most people live near larger cities on North Island or South Island (the two main Islands that make up New Zealand), there are also small rural towns scattered around both islands as well as on other smaller islands such as Stewart Island/Rakiura and Chatham Islands. The vast majority of New Zealander’s identify as being European (70%), with African, Asian and Pacific Islanders making up the rest (30%). English is the most widely spoken language with over 98% percent proficiency among those aged 15 years or more.
Square Miles: The total land area is 103,483 square miles (or 268,021 km²), including offshore islands such as Stewart Island/Rakiura and Chatham Islands which bring it up to 104,904 square miles (or 273,534 sq km). This makes it slightly larger than Japan but much smaller than Australia.
Weather: The climate across most parts of New Zealand is temperate maritime; however there can be significant variation from region to region depending on factors such as proximity to mountain ranges or ocean currents etc. In general terms North Island experiences warmer summers and milder winters compared to South Island which typically has cooler summers and colder winters due to its higher elevation levels leading to snowfall during certain months.
Shipping Port: There are multiple ports along both North Island and South Island that serve international shipping to NZ needs for cargo vessels; however the Port Of Auckland is considered one of the busiest commercial ports in all NZ shipping circles due to its international connectivity via rail/road networks combined with direct access into open waters for large container vessels travelling between Asia & Europe via Australasia routes etc., hence making it a very attractive option for global traders looking for cost-effective solutions when it comes to their sea freight containers to NZ and requirements & costs associated with them etc..
Facts: Some fun facts about New Zealand include that it has three official languages – English, Maori and NZ sign language; it’s home to some unique wildlife including kiwi birds (which cannot fly) plus Hector’s dolphins found off its coastlines which are considered one of smallest dolphin species on Earth; also picturesque Milford Sound located within Fiordland National Park consistently ranks amongst top 10 natural wonders globally so really worth visiting if you get chance!
