This landmark documentary series seeks to uncover the special bond New Zealanders have with the land. Journeying through our magnificent mountain ranges, lush forests and coastal harbours, this stunning exploration of the landscape around us discovers the effect it has on our national character.
'Our New Zealand' is about ordinary people in remarkable places and features some of the most beautiful and untouched regions of the country. This very personal and very New Zealand perspective of our unique country and its contrasting landscapes is told by New Zealanders who have an empathy for a particular place, their own stories and the stories of the land.
Come on a journey of New Zealand and experience this amazing country the way New Zealanders do. Featuring 26 individual stories, you can discover the unexpected beauty of an ice cave on the Tasman Glacier, feel the exhilaration of a ridge climb in the Lewis Pass, wonder at the lush Nikau Forests on the Heaphy Track, slide down the silica sands at the entrance to New Zealand's northern most harbour, surf the waves at Piha, wake to the dawn chorus at Nelson Lakes and traverse the slopes of Mt Aspiring and feel a part of New Zealand.
