NZ Geographic Is back

Celebration and Discovery

Iconic magazine title New Zealand Geographic is back on the shelves this week.

The magazine's return has been greeted with a flood of messages and letters from loyal subscribers congratulating the new publisher for ensuring the New Zealand Geographic "journey" continues. Such an emotional reaction to a magazine is rare and can be attributed to its unwavering commitment to quality and substance as it celebrates the evolution of New Zealand and New Zealanders.

The relaunch issue explores how the country can meet its energy needs when the world is faced with the reality that the days of cheap oil are behind us. The story The Coal Rush presents a timely snapshot of our coal industry and discusses how our vast coal resources can best be utilised.

In Gallipoli -- A Hill Too Far our writer mixes his experience of an Anzac Day spent at Gallipoli with a powerful recounting of the conflict. And New Zealand Geographic celebrates our wildlife in a photographic essay on Gannets, which features some of the finest bird pictures the magazine has ever published.

In February this year, the company that previously published New Zealand Geographic under license from ACP Media Ltd – which owns the title – was placed in liquidation leading to a cessation in production of the magazine. However, successful negotiations between ACP Media Ltd and Rural News Group – a long-standing publisher of several leading New Zealand farming and agricultural titles – means New Zealand Geographic is once again available.

The magazine’s previous editor and art director have both been retained to ensure the high quality and readability of New Zealand Geographic is not diminished in any way.

Although not obliged to, Rural News Group has also undertaken to honour all paid up subscriptions to New Zealand Geographic. The magazine will also be available to non-subscribers via bookstores, supermarkets and magazine outlets. For subscription information see or freephone 0800 782 436.
