After some travel in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji where he was involved with some mining ventures, Gray spent ten years working as a farmer in New Norfolk (New Norfolk, Tasmania), but by 1912 was in Hobart (Hobart, Tasmania) editing the ''Daily Post'', an Australian Labor Party newspaper. When the paper was taken over by the Australian Workers' Union, Gray moved to Sydney where he worked for Jack Lang (Jack Lang (Australian politician)) briefly, before returning to Hobart to edit an ALP ACTU (Australian Council of Trade Unions) newspaper called the ''People's Voice'' (later ''The Voice''). As both Treasurer and editor of ''The Voice'', Dwyer-Gray was a proponent of the Social Credit concept pioneered by C. H. Douglas. He had visited New Zealand, which he saw as an ideal model and precedent for Tasmania's economy and society—a "worker's paradise" as he referred to it—should the Douglasite concept of national credit be adopted.

”, which acts as a bridge into “The Day of the Clone”. Pemberton had previously served as script editor of ''Doctor Who'' and had penned the serial “Fury from the Deep”. Current uses In modern usage, the term "Governor General" originated in those British colonies which became self-governing within the British empire, such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand. With the exception of New Zealand, each of the previously constituent colonies of these federated colonies already had a Governor, and the Crown's representative to the federated Dominion was therefore given the superior title of Governor General. New Zealand was granted Dominion status in 1907, but as it had never been a federal state there was no pressing need to change the gubernatorial title. It was not until 28 June 1917 that the Arthur Foljambe, 2nd Earl of Liverpool was appointed the first Governor General of New Zealand. Another non-federal state, Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador), was a Dominion for 16 years with the King's representative retaining the title of Governor throughout this time.

"Eh?" used to solicit agreement or confirmation is also heard regularly amongst speakers in Australia (where it is sometimes spelled "ay (Wiktionary:ay)" on the assumption that "eh" would rhyme with "heh (Wiktionary:heh)" or "meh (Wiktionary:meh)"). In the Caribbean island of Barbados the word "nuh" acts similar. The usage in New Zealand is similar, and is more common in the North Island. It is also heard in the United States, especially Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (although the Scandinavian (North Germanic languages)-based Yooperism (Yooper dialect) "ya" is more common), Oklahoma and the New England region. In New England and Oklahoma, it is also used as a general exclamation as in Scotland and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. It is occasionally used to express indifference, in a similar way to "meh". In Australia, New Zealand and India, heatless species are called "capsicums" while hot ones are called "chilli" "chillies" (double L). Pepperoncini are also known as "sweet capsicum". The term "bell peppers" is almost never used, although C. annuum and other varieties which have a bell-shape and are fairly hot, are often called "bell chillies".

'''New Zealand''' ( south of the Pacific island areas (Pacific Islands) of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity (Biodiversity of New Zealand) of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.
Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250–1300 CE and developed a distinctive Māori culture. Abel Tasman, a Dutch explorer, was the first European to sight New Zealand in 1642 CE.

Today, the majority of New Zealand's population (New Zealanders) of 4.5 million is of European descent (New Zealand European); the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders. Reflecting this, New Zealand's culture (Culture of New Zealand) is mainly derived from Māori and early British settlers, with recent broadening arising from increased immigration (Immigration to New Zealand). The official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language, with English predominant. The country's economy was historically dominated by the export of wool, but exports of dairy products, meat, and wine, along with tourism, are more significant today.
