fast Facts About NEW ZEALAND


In 1893, New Zealand was the first country to give women the right to vote! Kate Sheppard led the signing of documents presented to parliament which saw New Zealand lead the way in woman's suffrage movements.


With a population of 4.5 million people, there are still more sheep than people in New Zealand.

The Future

New Zealand is the first country in the world to see a new day. Their East Cape is situated just under 500km from the international dateline, meaning they are living in the future!
