New Zealand

Hello! Today I will be talking about New Zealand. This amazing country is where the Lord Of The Rings movie is made. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the astonishing view, then hop on a zip line and gaze at the many mountains, forests, beaches, and even waterfalls. After an exciting day of zip lining, bungy jumping, and many other things, settle down and enjoy some delicious food, including crayfish, roast lamb, and many other different types of New Zealand food. In this article I will be discussing Lord Of the Rings, New Zealand Landscapes, and interesting things about New Zealand including cities, languages, food and sheep!

If you like the Lord of Rings, you would enjoy checking out places where the movie was made. Hobbiton (the Shire) is a two-hour bus ride from the largest city Auckland. But if you're looking for a more adventurous hike, go and climb the amazing sight of Amon Amarth, otherwise known as Mount Doom which is where Mordor was filmed. Just to look at the astonishing view is a moment you will never forget. There are also a lot of other movies made in New Zealand, such as the Hobbit trilogy, the chronicles of Narnia and King Kong.

Mount Doom is just a taste of the many, many mountains, waterfalls, beaches, forests, and more. If your plan is to hop on a boat, row down a still river, and gaze up at the beautiful cliff sides; then you better be ready for the raging waterfalls, don't get too close or you might get splashed! But if you're looking for a more greener feel then try hiking in some amazing forests such as Coromandel Forest Park, Hanmer Forest Park, Omahuta Forest Park, and many, many, more. New Zealand doesn’t have a very large population, New York has even more people than New Zealand does! This has resulted in many amazing sights and nature landscapes to be left untouched.

If you like to visit cities, the three largest cities are Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch. Wellington is the capital city while Auckland and Christchurch have international airports. The official languages there include English, māori, and New Zealand sign language. Sheep farming is a significant industry, which has made the country the largest exporter of lamb. In 2017, there are about 40 million sheep compared to about 4.4 million people in the country. Also there are a lot of lamb, so roast lamb is one of the most popular foods there. New Zealand also offers one of the largest varieties of seafood as an island nation and don’t forget to taste crayfish and other seafood there!

In this article I talk about Lord of the Rings and other movies made in New Zealand, it’s landscapes and Natural wonders, and interesting things about New Zealand. New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places on earth and makes for amazing vacations and homes! The scenery isn’t the only thing that makes New Zealand so amazing, it is also full of landmarks and a long history with a very deep culture. New Zealand doesn’t have a very big population which is why there is so much wildlife! Thank you for reading!
