πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ Home to 5 million New Zealanders, informally called “Kiwis”, who are mainly of British ancestry, but with a sizeable minority of Maori, descended from Polynesian explorers who discovered the islands 700 years ago. One third of Kiwis live around the largest city, Auckland, while the capital Wellington and Christchurch on South Island make up the next two largest cities in New Zealand.

πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ New Zealand culture pulls on these two traditions, but with Rugby, in the form of the All Blacks national team dominating the sport, while the growth of TV and movie production in the last 20 years has seen world class epics such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy filmed and produced in New Zealand.

πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ Famous Kiwi actors include Russell Crowe, Karl Urban, Sam Neill and Lucy Lawless, while Jane Campion and Peter Jackson are Oscar-winning film directors from New Zealand. The New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary was the first person to reach the summit of the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. But perhaps the greatest of all Kiwis was Ernest Rutherford, considered the father of nuclear physics, who discovered the atomic nucleus among many other groundbreaking discoveries in the field.
