Danish community in New Zealand
There is a small Danish community in New Zealand, descended from a group of early settlers who came out to clear thick North Island bush in the middle of the 19th century, and stayed on to found settlements such as Dannevirke and Norsewood.
For further information about the Danish people who migrated to New Zealand, please visit Te Ara (The Encyclopaedia of New Zealand).
