New Zealand Nature

New Zealands nature is nature in its purest form. The landscape is an ancient one, a unique one, and a changing one, with many geographical formations shaped by volcanic and tectonic forces.

The country's isolation from the rest of the world has led to the evolution of distinctive flora and fauna, echoing back to ancient prehistoric times.

The subtropical forest is steeped in spirituality: creatures like the tuatara (a lizard that's an actual living dinosaur), the mighty Kauri tree and unique, large, endearing flightless birds such as the kiwi itself. Despite its small size, New Zealand's coastline stretches over 15,000 km of coves, headlines and beaches teeming with marine life of every description.

Natural Environment - New Zealand is nature in its purest form.  With vast open spaces filled with stunning rugged landscapes, gorgeous beaches, often spectacular geothermal and volcanic activity, a temperate climate and fascinating animal and plant life, and it is no surprise that New Zealand’s pure natural environment is so attractive to visitors from other countries.

And the great advantage of New Zealand is there are many different landscapes, environments, and ecosystems so close to each other.
