A taste of Kiwi humour.

    1. Abel Tasman was a Dutch explorer and the first to reach here, and map it out, in his ships Heemskerck and Zeehaen. Tasman stayed at the South Island in Golden Bay (which he named Murderers’ Bay due to clashes with Maori) in December 1642. He mapped out sections of the two main islands’ west coasts, calling the islands Staten Landt, after the States-General of the Netherlands. It is Staten Landt that appears on his first maps of this country. Dutch cartographers would later change the name to Nova Zeelandia in Latin, then Nieuw Zeeland, it being actually named after the Dutch province of Zeeland. When Captain James Cook arrived some 100 years later he anglicised it to the now New Zealand.
