Poet ARD Fairburn wrote the narration for this bright and breezy tourism film by Robert Steele. A pioneer of the commercial use of 16mm film in post-war New Zealand, Steele travelled from Hokianga to Milford Sound to make the 72 minute film. Rotorua, Nelson, Mt Cook and Queenstown feature, alongside glimpses of Māori customs, tobacco farming and skiing. Newly built state houses, Franz Josef Glacier (three kilometres longer than it was in 2020), and Rotorua's famous guide Rangi also appear. Steele's company Neuline made the film; it was purchased by the New Zealand Government.
