New Zealand Attractions

June 6, 2011 | Travel

New Zealand is one of the hot spots for visitors and tourist around the world. It is claimed to be the last island occupied by man because it is one of the remotest land on earth. It is found in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean and composed of numerous islands with two big islands located in the North and  South regions. This country is 1,500 km or 900 miles of the east Australia and 1000 km away from the New Caledonia which is at the south of the Pacific Island Nations.

The isolation of the island from the rest of the world is one of the reasons why indigenous people and a great number of species of birds, animals and wildlife inhabit this calm and friendly island. However, due to the country’s advancement and population increase, many of them have become extinct and left their natural habitat.

Due to the abundance of the country’s history and culture, New Zealand is a home of numerous, spectacular, and breathtaking landmarks.

Here are the top five and most visited spot in New Zealand:

1.       The Beehive Building. Found in Wellington (also known as the Parliament Building), Beehive Building was designed with the shape of a real beehive.
