100% Pure New Zealand Facts!

Three facts that I learnt about New Zealand.

1. New Zealand has a population of over 4.4 million people!

2.New Zealand is a small country, but same size to Great Britain or Japan.

3. Over three-quarters of the population in New Zealand live on the north side of the island, only one-third with the rest of the population live in Auckland.


  1. Kia ora Robati,

    I am so excited to see that you have joined the Winter Learning Journey programme this holiday. That's awesome!!!

    I really enjoyed reading the three facts that you posted about New Zealand. Did any of the information that you read surprise you? I must admit that I was surprised to read that over three-quarters of the population of New Zealand live on the north island and only one-quarter live on the south island. I wonder what it is like to live down south...

    Have you ever met anyone from the south island of New Zealand or been there yourself? I have visited a few of the cities and towns in the south island (Nelson, Greymouth, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill) but I have never lived there. Apparently it is quiet a bit colder in the south island than it is up here in Auckland. I heard on the radio today, in fact, that is was -8 degrees in Southland (the bottom of the south island) today and that much of the area was covered in snow and ice. Yikes! I think that we're pretty lucky to live up here in Auckland...

    What do you think? Would you like to move down to Southland and live amongst the ice and snow?

    I hope that you'll have time to keep blogging with us this holiday, Robati. I always enjoy reading your blog posts!!

    Until next time,

    Rachel :)
