Specialties from New Zealand…..


Date of Issue – 23 March 2011

New Zealand Post issued a set of five stamps on specialties of  New Zealand . The stamps cover different themes . It is a wonderful set for Tourism theme. The stamps are very beautiful and attractive .

Hokey Pokey
A Kiwi icecream institution, hokey pokey has been the New Zealand icecream flavour of choice since the 1940s. Many a Kiwi summer has been made that much sweeter with a lick of this vanilla and crunchy toffee combo.


Trout Fishing
It’s all in the flick of the wrist! New Zealand trout fishing is regarded as some of the best in the world, particularly in the picturesque rivers of the central North Island.


Mountain Biking
True adventurers at heart, New Zealanders love to get their hearts racing. An action-packed pastime, mountain biking is the perfect way to see the nation’s unique terrain, whether it’s up, down or sideways!


Kiwi Road Sign
Kiwis crossing! Featuring New Zealand’s famous national bird, this iconic road sign is one to look out for in the countryside, particularly as evening draws near and this flightless bird comes out to play.


The Beach
For most New Zealanders, summer means the beach, and there are certainly plenty to choose from. Whether it’s for a surf, a swim or a barefoot walk on the sand, it’s all part of the Kiwi way of life.
