Buzz·Posted on 12 Sept 202216 Reasons That New Zealand Is Actually Far Superior To AustraliaAustralia, it's time to end your superiority complex.by Jemima SkelleyBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. The weather. mandybean 🐏🔪a clever title @espurrkawa meanwhile in australia 07:59 AM - 08 Feb 2017 Reply Retweet Favorite Twitter: @espurrkawa Yes, Australia is warmer, but for about three months of the year you can barely go outside because it’s so hot. In NZ there's a far more temperate climate. It might be colder in winter, but it's easier to bundle up for a couple of months than it is to be constantly sweating from October to March. 2. Being able to buy booze at the supermarket.

Plus, a 12-pack of beer is $20. New World In Australia you're lucky to get six for that price. 4. New Zealand's capital city is actually cool.

As the capital of NZ, it's surprisingly pretty small — only just over 200,000 people live there. But it's MILES AND MILES better than Canberra. In fact, it's like a cool mini version of Melbs. 5. The desserts. flic.kr Australia has deserts — and NZ has desserts. Pavlova, hokey pokey ice cream, lolly cake, chocolate fish, Jelly Tip, cream doughnuts...NZ really knows their sweets. 6. The coins. flic.kr New Zealand got rid of their five-cent coins over a decade ago when everyone just got sick of them weighing down their pockets. Now the smallest is 10 cents. Plus the NZ $1 coin is smaller than the $2 coin — logic. 7. The wildlife. Kathrin & Stefan Marks / Creative Commons / Via Flickr: ks_marks They have zero snakes. Like, none at all. They only have ONE venomous spider, the katipō, and it's pretty rare. So you can go camping without worrying about redbacks and snake bites. 8. The diversity of the landscape.

They've got volcanoes, mountains, lakes, rivers, beaches, fiords, glaciers, farmland and forest — all within a couple hours' drive of each other. 9. Road trips. Google Maps Speaking of driving, road trips are far more do-able in New Zealand — it doesn't take literal days to get from one end of the country to another. Plus there are a lot of places along the way to stop off, it's not just red dirt and harsh landscapes. 10. The rugby team.

Phil Walter / Getty Images New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the right to vote in 1893 and same-sex marriage became legal in 2013. 12. And as a side bar, New Zealand is a lot less outspokenly racist. Peter Parks / AFP via Getty Images Compared to Australia, anyway. 13. The extreme approach to life. Rod Hill / Getty Images From skydiving and bungy to rafting and everything in between, the activities in NZ are certainly geared towards shitting yourself...but in a good way. In fact, it was a Kiwi who came up with the idea of commercialising bungy jumping. 14. The general isolation (in a good way). Doradalton / Getty Images/iStockphoto New Zealand is the place where everyone in the world — particularly people in the US — want to flee to live out the inevitable apocalypse. Sure, not everyone will fit and it's definitely more of a hypothetical dream, but we'll take that and wear it as a badge of honour. 15. The wealth of things to do — and how easy it all is to get to. Spotmatik / Getty Images If you live in NZ and want a weekend away with mates, it's going to be a short drive or — at most — a two hour flight. But say you take a trip from Sydney to Broome, you're looking at a good twelve hours of travelling. No thanks. 16. And lastly, New Zealand has a lot fewer Aussies living there.
