Our landscapes are considered some of the most diverse in the world, from snowy mountains and rugged bush to golden beaches and crystal clear lakes.
New Zealand is a cultural melting pot. We celebrate our indigenous Maori heritage and have strong ties to our neighbours across the ditch (Australia), the Pacific Islands and Asia.
This naturally accepting nature of New Zealanders (or ‘Kiwis’ as we call ourselves) means we are a pretty laid back and friendly bunch.
Even though we are a tiny little nation of four and half million people (but 40 million sheep!) our cities have everything that you would expect in other major metropolitan areas such as great restaurants, even better shopping, events, activities and all that other fun stuff.

Auckland City

Auckland City

AUCKLAND will host the 5th International Safer Roads Conference and as New Zealand’s largest city, it is also the international gateway to the rest of the country.
Located in the North Island, Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, earning this place the nickname “City of Sails”.
Renown as New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city, imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanting holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland.
