Don’t ever mix this place up with Australia. New Zealand is a land unto it’s own. And sure, lots of us know it as the place all the Lord of the Rings scenes were filmed except for one. But there so much more to it than that. So just how much do you know about the home of the Kiwis? Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 10. Golf Courses With as lush an environment as that found in New Zealand, it makes sense that this country has one of the most golf courses per capita in the world. It’s a random fact, but a fact nonetheless. There are approximately 10,374 golf courses per capita. Golfing is, after all, one the main attractions to the country and is home to some of the most scenic courses as well. 9. Women’s Suffrage New Zealand was the first country to grant women the right to vote, with women voting for the first time during an election in 1893. In that same year, Elizabeth Yates would become the Mayor of Onehunga (oh nee hungah), which made her the first female who would have held a political post like this in any part of the British Empire. And now New Zealand will always be known as the first self-governing colony in the world that granted women’s suffrage. 8. Kiwi Now, talking about Kiwis and New Zealand can be a bit confusing. Kiwis are the name given to 3 main things: the fruits, the birds, and a nickname for the ethnic group otherwise known as the Māori. In terms of the fruit, the kiwis we all know and some of us love are actually not native to the islands New Zealand. Rather, they were originally referred to as Chinese gooseberry and are native to China. However, when introduced to New Zealand, it was not thought that it would sell very well under its original name, so they changed it. 7. Baldwin Street The award for the steepest residential street in the world according to the Guinness World Records goes to Baldwin Street, located in Dunedin, New Zealand. Baldwin Street has a length of about 350 m, or 1,150 ft. Because of its famously steep structure, it is venue to the annual Baldwin Street Gutbuster where participants run all the way uphill and all the way back down again. 6. Sheep Population There also happens to be more sheep than there are people in New Zealand. According to statistics, there are at least 3 million people that live in New Zealand, if not more. However, there are over 60 million recorded sheep living there as well. 5. Last Place Humans Settled In relation to the history of the rest of the world, so far, it is known that the islands of New Zealand has been one of the last places in the world humans have settled, with the last place being Antarctica. The first humans appeared in New Zealand only 700 years ago, when the islands were discovered by the Polynesians who then settled there. 4. Mokomokai Speaking of the indigenous people, the Māori have a practice that is known as Mokomokai, which are decorated preserved heads. You might wonder why anyone would want something like that nowadays, but back in the era of the Musket Wars in 1807 to 1845, these traditional Mokomokai heads were valuable items of trade. There has even been a recent campaign which urges the mokomokai to be returned to their relatives instead of being put on display at museums. 3. The Longest Name For a Place The location for the longest name for a place in any English speaking country goes to this hill in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. When translated into English, it means “the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as landeater played his flute to his loved ones. Most people just refer to it as Taumata Hill. 2. Hobbiton New Zealand is home to the fictional lands of J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination, as seen in Peter Jackson’s films. One of the most recognizable scenes are those that take place in Hobbiton, a place where Elijah Wood technically grew up. The actual set for the village is located on a sheep farm in Matamata which is still there to this day--and is a popular place for tourism and pretty much a pilgrimage for Tolkien fans. Wizards Speaking of high fantasy lore, New Zealand is also the first place in the world to appoint an Official National Wizard. Ian Brackenbury Channell, or QSM, a magician, educator, comedian, and politician is known as The Wizard of New Zealand. In 1990, he was made the official Wizard. As the Wizard, he has been known to stand on a ladder in public places giving speeches and sermons and in 2009 was even awarded a Queen’s Service medal.
