New Zealand is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean. Its closest neighbour is Australia, which is a separate country – one of the first things to learn is that New Zealand is its own autonomous country and does not belong to Australia in any way.
Another important thing to know about New Zealand is that its culture is a unique mix of its main cultural influences: European, Māori, Pacific Island and some Asian cultures.
In a way, it is its own melting pot, but a melting pot consisting of very specific cultures and very distinct histories. While the country is heavily influenced by Britain it is important to note that New Zealand’s unique cultural mix makes it stand out from all the other cultures in the world, including its closest neighbor, Australia.
