Welcome to New Zealand

by Kath Bee



Welcome to New Zealand, is about Kath's home country. Sung by amazing kids - with an incredible, instrumental backing created and produced by Doug Stenhouse. It’s a fun way to sing about our country and learn something along the way. A great way to welcome new visitors and a fun alternative to our National Anthem. This song can be enjoyed by anyone in NZ and all around the world!


Welcome to New Zealand
Kia ora and welcome to New Zealand
This is the place that we call home
It’s also known as Aotearoa
This is the “Land of the Long White Cloud”

North and South, the two main islands
Stewart and The Chathams too
Waiheke and White to name a few
Up the top is Te Reinga
The most northern place of all
Bottom of the south
We call it Bluff


Berries, apples, kiwifruit
And lots of kai moana too
Kauri, Manuka and Ponga (it’s our silver fern!)
Native birds like Kakapo, Weka and the Kereru
And watch that Kea!
‘Cause he’ll eat anything!


We’ve got: gumboots, sheep, volcanoes, All Blacks, No.8 wire and bungy too
Choice pavlova, jandals, hangi, Buzzy Bees and barbeques
Fish ‘n chips, boil up, beaches, rivers, mountains, lakes of blue
Tuatara, bubbling mud and don’t forget the Kiwi!! PHEW!!

Kia Ora and welcome to New Zealand
This is the place that we call home
Nau mai haere mai ki Aotearoa

We are the land of the long white cloud

We are the land of the long white cloud
