The New Zealand Society of Hong Kong has been active since 1957 and aims to promote contacts between New Zealanders living in Hong Kong and those people interested in New Zealand. Throughout its six decades of existence it has always been an entirely volunteer-run non-profit society, with all funds raised applied to subsidise events and activities for the NZ community in Hong Kong or donated to charities.

Being a member of the New Zealand Society comes with a number of privileges. In addition to preferential bookings and heavily subsidised member prices at all NZSHK events, members can enjoy everyday benefits including extra baggage allowances with Air New Zealand for all classes of travel.

An electronic bulletin of events called The Buzz is published by the NZSHK which contains information about the Society's activities and other events in Hong Kong, and the rest of China through the KiwiConnect network, with a kiwi theme or flavour.
KonnectioNZ (which is open to all New Zealanders living in Hong Kong and their guests) meets monthly, usually on the last Friday of every month (check the Events section for any changes to the date).
