New Zealand is a land of geographical treasures, from the sub-tropical north to the more temperate but equally spectacular south. Packed into a relativley small geographical area are a diverse array of stunning beaches, mountains, rivers and coastline as well as some of the most glorious examples of glacial and geothermic activity in the world. New Zealand also has incredibly diverse wildlife, including indigenous species such as the famous Kiwi as well as the endangered Kakapo parrot which is the focus of a world-renowned conservation programme.New Zealand is considered to be an adventure-seeker's dream, with the South Island's Queenstown commonly referred to as the "Adventure Capital of the World", and the area itself was the birthplace of commercial bungy jumping in the 1980s. The spectacular countryside has also been featured to great effect in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Narnia films.New Zealand is frequently one of the highest ranked countries in international "quality of life" surveys, and has long been a destination for families wishing to take advantage of its fabulous outdoor lifestyle, safe communities and high economic prosperity. In fact, with so many beautiful regions and lifestyle opportunities the most difficult decision you may have to make is choosing where you would like to live and work!
