about New Zealand

Located in the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is a group of islands to the South East of Australia.


New Zealand consists of two main islands: the North Island and the South Island. New Zealand is also known as Aotearoa – meaning ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ in Maori.


Not only is New Zealand home to the All Blacks, hokey pokey ice cream and the zorb, but we at Curious Wanderer Society HQ call New Zealand home – and we’re beyond thrilled to share a little of our country with you!
