New Zealand is a very interesting country. It has got total area of 269,000 square
kilometers. It is situated to south-east of Australia in the Pacific Ocean. It consists
of two main islands (North Island and South Island) and some smaller ones. Nearly
3.5 million people live in the country. The capital of New Zealand is Wellington. It
is a financial centre too. The city was founded in 1840 and has been the capital
since 1865. The official language Is English. The climate of New Zealand is moist.
New Zealand is rich in minerals. There are some main industries in the country, for
example, iron and steel industry. The country has gas and petroleum. There are
many mountains in New Zealand. The highest is Mount Cook (3,764 metres or
12,349 feet). There are many rivers and lakes in the country. The chief rivers are
the Waikato and the Wairu. You have heard about the native animals in the
country. One of them is the kiwi. This interesting bird lives in the wet parts of the
thick bushes. In the day-time the bird does not go out. It comes out only at night to
find food. Kiwis cannot fly. Many years ago kiwis were hunted for food. Now the
government does not permit the hunting the kiwis. The kiwi is now the symbol of
New Zealand people. Small children are often called kiwis. New Zealand is
independent state, but formerly it is a part of the British Empire. The head of the
state is the Queen. New Zealand is self-governing state. The Parliament consists of
one House only, the House of Representatives. The Prime Minister is the head of
the government. New Zealand has got heavy industry. There are many plants in the
country. Paper and rubber industries are developed too. New Zealand exports
wool, meat, butter. There are some big cities such as Auckland, Wellington,

New Zealand
What is the name of the country which has volcanoes and rivers of ice, deer and
sea-elephants? It is New Zealand, called the Land of the Long White Cloud by the
Maoris. New Zealand is an island country. It is made up of three islands: the North
and South Islands and Steward Island, a small land mass just to the south of (he
South Island. Most of its people live in North Island, and that is where you find big
volcanoes like Egmont and Tongariro and the boiling pools and geysers and lakes
of bubbling mud. Auckland, Christ church and Wellington are the biggest cities.
Wellington is the capital. South Island is larger than North Island and has the
highest mountains. There you can find the snow-capped Southern Alps, rising
3.764 metres to the tip of Mount Cook (named after Captain Cook, of course,
because he visited the islands before sailing on westwards and discovering the
eastern coast of Australia).
South Island is very beautiful with its Alps and lakes, its glaciers and fiords. Have
you ever heard of Milford Sound? That is one of the most picturesque of the fiords,
with cliffs rising straight up out of the water, the whole scene reflected in the
water. Down there, too, are the Sunderland Falls, where water drops six hundred
metres, making these falls one of the highest waterfalls in the whole world. So you
can see there is plenty to look at in New Zealand. Plenty of things to do for
tourists, because New Zealand is also famous for its fishing, snow sports,
mountaineering, sailing and hiking. The climate is pleasant at all seasons, without
much difference between winter and summer. New Zealand does not have the
terrible heat of Australian summers; the oceans temper its climate and the
mountains bring down quite a lot of rain. What do the people do? Farm mostly.
Dairy products, meat and wool are the main exports. New Zealand ranks second
only to Australia as an exporter of wool. There are many factories there too, with
hydro-electric stations to produce the power for them. North Island is where you
find the Maoris, the fine people who lived in these islands hundreds of years before
the white man came. Most of them live near Auckland.
The Maoris, a Polynesian people, are the aborigines of New Zealand. After long
stays in Indonesia and the South Pacific, which they explored for many years, they
made their great journey to New Zealand about the middle of the 14th century.
They sailed in double canoes open to all weathers. They knew the winds, the ocean
currents and the stars, and this earned them the name of Vikings of the Sunrise.
The capital of New Zealand since 1865, and one of its busiest ports, Wellington is
at southern end of North Island, lying among hills on the western side of a natural
harbour. It is the third largest city in New Zealand. Auckland (the former capital) is
the first largest city, and Christchurch is the second. The Maori name for
Wellington Harbour means the great bay of Tara. According to Maori legend, Tara
was the first Polynesian settler in this place. But Nicholson (after a Royal Navy
captain) was the name given to it by the first British settlers, and it is still
sometimes called by this name. In 1839 a British officer bought the site of
Wellington from the Maoris; he got it in exchange for blankets and some other
unimportant things. In 1840 the first settlers arrived and called their settlement
Britannia. By 1842 there were 3.700 colonists in the settlement and Britannia had
become Wellington.
The kiwi is rather an unusual bird found only in New Zealand. It has no tail, almost
no wings, and its nostrils are situated near the end of its bill. No other bird lays an
egg so large in proportion to its size. Its egg is about one fifth of its own weight.
This is a tremendous size. In many countries. New Zealander. too, are known as
Kiwis, for the bird is also the symbol of people of the two islands. Forests of exotic
pines near the centre of New Zealand's North Island, cover an area of more than
160000 hectares. This is the largest single continuous area of planted forest in the
world. New Zealand has more than four hundred thousand hectares of planted
forests. The most important wood is pine, which grows five times faster in New
Zealand than in its native habitat in California, USA.
