Perhaps because it is so difficult for non-English speaking people to immigrate to New Zealand, foreign newspapers cannot readily be found in New Zealand. However, news from around the world can be accessed online through this link: http://www.wcl.govt.nz/freesites/newspapers1.html.
Foreign magazines, particularly American, Australian and European ones, can be found at Maggazino. The store does not have a website. It has two locations:
- Ponsonby – 123 Ponsonby Road 376-6933
- Newmarket – 6 Morrow Street 524-0604
Many foreign (English language) magazines can also be found at bookstores including Borders and Whitcoulls.
UK newspapers, such as The Express and The Daily Mail, can often be found in post shops.
