The story of the Dutch in New Zealand touches on many aspects of Kiwi life. Even our country’s name wouldn't be the same without Abel Tasman's arrival, back in 1642. You can find that fascinating ‘touch of Dutch’ just about anywhere. Maybe you like your Vogel’s bread with a slice of Verkerks salami, or Gouda cheese?

Perhaps you’ve lived in one of those a smartly designed Lockwood homes, or once drank coffee at Suzy’s Lounge – the ‘Queen of the Coffee Houses’? Maybe you have some Dutch blood running in the family?

Explore the story you never knew. Discover your personal connections with the Dutch – and their children and grandkids. Ever since the migration waves of the 1950s, we helped create a more diverse and multi-cultural nation.
