Australian Woman Killed in New Zealand

Police have named the Australian woman killed in Fiordland national park as Melissa Therese Martin, 38, of Sydney.

Mrs Martin’s husband is said to have received non-life threatening injuries, after he fell 40 metres down an ice face in  Karako Glacier area.

About 30 times as many Australians are killed in New Zealand, as New Zealanders are in Australia.


Melissa Martin, 38, and her husband Brad Skinner from Sydney, Australia. They had planned to spend 3 years “adventure-neering” in New Zealand, Asia, Europe and South America, according to their blog. But like “many”  other Australians, she never managed to get out of New Zealand alive.

On average, at least one foreigner will be killed in New Zealand every day throughout 2011.
