About The Group

Tourism New Zealand is the organisation responsible for marketing New Zealand to the world as a tourist destination.

We are the oldest tourism marketing department in the world, with a team of around 150 staff in 13 offices across the globe.

Tourism New Zealand’s purpose is to enrich New Zealand by maximising the contribution of visitors. We deliver this by maximising the impact domestic and international visitors have across the four wellbeings of nature, society, culture and the economy.

Before COVID-19, tourism was New Zealand's largest export industry and delivered $40.9 billion to the country. Tourism made a significant positive impact on regional economies supporting employment by directly employing 8.4 percent (229,566 people) of the New Zealand workforce.

New Zealand’s enduring attraction as a tourist destination draws on:

New Zealand is a country that offers something for everyone – with its diverse range of stunning landscapes and amazing activities, you can create a holiday full of adventure, a food and wine connoisseur’s dream trip, or a relaxing getaway from life’s hustle and bustle.
