Hi Zoe

If you read the web page kindly posted above that you will have found that the answer is yes. Make sure you apply before you go as otherwise the medical requirements are stricter, ie you must pay for a chest xray & full medical if you apply in NZ.

As to the question

is Oz better than Australia

thats not really a fair question. Everyone has different experiences where ever they are in the world - for example some people say Bognor Regis is a top place because they have tonnes of friends there, I'd say not.

In my opinion, independent of the greatness of Oz, New Zealand is an awesome country - the landscape is stunning, people are friendly, climate is temporal, loads of stuff to do and see.

I can see why you're looking forward with reservations as you've obviously had a great time in Oz but realy you have a/the great time ahead. Like any new place you visit, NZ deserves to be judged it on its own merits.

Good luck!

I only can answer what question is NZ better than Australia - personally l wouldnt & couldnt compare the two countries - they are totally different! NZ maybe is the more laid back of the two countries and both are stunning but on different levels!

Good luck and have fun in NZ
