Whilst international tourist arrivals have been growing rapidly over the last two decades, New Zealand remains a niche destination, due to our geographic location.
We have a different appeal than high volume tourist destinations like France, Spain, USA and the UK. Research indicates that New Zealand appeals to people seeking adventure, connection with nature, relaxation and revitalisation.
The New Zealand Tourism Industry - The tourism industry is one of New Zealand's largest earners of foreign exchange. Around NZ$6.4 billion in foreign exchange was generated from international visitors to New Zealand in the year to December 2003. By comparison, New Zealand earned NZ$4.7 billion from dairy exports and NZ$4.1 billion from meat exports in 2003.
Tourism employs about one in every ten people so it's an important industry for New Zealand.
