Pete Bethune is a hero in New Zealand. He's a hero worldwide to people who want to see the end of whaling.
My very, very first moment on set on 'Lord of the Rings' in 2000 was me in a lycra suit, six and a half thousand feet up on a mountain in New Zealand, standing in front of 250 crew who were all wondering what I was doing - myself included.
I come from a country that lives and breathes rugby, and I didn't think there would be anywhere else in the world that could be the same. But New Zealand takes it to another dimension. It's extraordinary how much passion Kiwis have for the game.
I am a New Zealander, but I don't want to swallow New Zealand identity in one gulp.
I really wanted to write an adventure story, a murder-mystery that was set during the gold-rush years in New Zealand.
As I flew back from New Zealand to bury my mother, it occurred to me that no matter how harrowing her loss was and how keenly it will always be felt, there was, nevertheless, a sense of relief that my father, sisters and I could say a final goodbye after the longest goodbye and relief that my mum had finally been released.

I've done an awful lot of skiing all over Europe: I've done Italy, Austria, France. I skied loads in New Zealand - I did pretty much every ski slope I could find.

One place that I looked at a lot from space and which looks alluring is New Zealand, especially the North Island. It's a big broad valley with a river flowing through it, and you can see the wine-making dryness of the land.

Kiri Te Kanawa

Maoris now own over half the commercial fishing industry in New Zealand.

Well of course New Zealand isn't anti-American.

Robert M. Parker, Jr.

John F. Kennedy
