The settlement history of New Zealand has created a unique culture blending Maori, European, Polynesian and Asian peoples and traditions. A nation of people of diverse backgrounds, New Zealanders are known for their creativity, warmth, integrity, humility and respect.

“There’s a kind of a core tranquility about New Zealand, a kind of assuredness that this is fairly close to approaching the perfect way to be.”
