Who We Are: Living in New Zealand in 2016

Watch: Who We Are - Pavlova Paradise

What makes New Zealand? Is it the people? The landscape? A shared history? Our obsession with rugby?

The Herald wanted to find out. So David Fisher and Mark Mitchell travelled from Bluff to Cape Reinga in a campervan. The resulting series, Who We Are, aims to explain what it means to be Kiwi in 2016.

This is part of a series of mini-documentaries about the themes that unite and - sometimes - divide us.

In it, we focus on housing. Is this still a quarter-acre Pavlova Paradise? And how have settlers' dreams of a "fairer Britain" evolved in a nation where $1 million is the average value of an Auckland house?
