Not all NZ content is on this instance, so I thought it would be helpful to create a list of NZ focused communities (with some level of filtering) to help people find what they are looking for.

Links are handled a bit weird at the moment in Lemmy. These communities will be linked to the page for the community, to make it easier for our users to subscribe. If you’re on another instance, the page will give you a community address to copy to the search bar of your instance, e.g. “!”. Copy this to the search form, click search, and wait 5-10 seconds for it to show up (quicker if someone else has searched before you).

Communities marked as (new) may not have much content yet.


  • Aotearoa / New Zealand - share posts about Aotearoa. For NZ related posts that don’t fit better in another community.
  • Off topic - For memes, random thoughts, or discussion of international news for NZers.
  • NZ Politics - For posts about politics or where a government is central to the article.
  • Support - Ask for help on, also used for announcement posts

Regional discussion
