The sparsely-populated yet immense country of New Zealand boasts a list of natural beauty as long as the land itself – which is over 990 miles (1,600km) in length. Floating in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, this former British colony is made up of two main islands punctuated with volcanoes, hot springs, lakes and glaciers, all tied in with mountain ranges.

The capital of Wellington is a small city with a big personality. Its colourful wooden houses, rolling hills and waterfront promenade overlooking Oriental Bay make for a fascinating city renowned for its culture and heritage - just don’t leave before you hop on the historic Wellington Cable Car!
