Profile Photo Life in New Zealand

Kia Ora ( Hello)

And welcome to my website Life in New Zealand, My name is Grant Castle and I was born in Auckland, New Zealand.  

I am Maori and my iwi is Ngapuhi and both of my parents are from Whangarei in the North Island.

People have asked me why did you start Life in New Zealand website?

Well, the idea came to me by accident, it all started back in December 2018, I have a lot of Whanau ( Family) and friends across the ditch (Australia) who have been living in Australia most of their lives. 

I thought I’ll make a Facebook page and Group called “Life in New Zealand” then I can share my photos and videos of New Zealand not just to my family and friends who live in Australia, but to whoever is interested in our little country New Zealand.     

Then in a couple of months, I noticed that Life in New Zealand Facebook page started to grow to around 2,000 Followers and 1,500 Likes in February 2019. 

I thought to myself people are really interested in our little country New Zealand.  

So as of  October 19th, 2020 Life in New Zealand Facebook page Likes: 64,921 and Followers: 80,998 and Facebook Group: 7,300 members and growing.

And that’s how I started “Life in New Zealand” website.  So feel free to browse our website where I will be uploading information on everything to do with Life in New Zealand from Travel, Food, Accommodation etc.
