Stone the crows cobber!
According to the travel website, they found that the Kiwi accent is “outrageously charming” also beating out Italian, Irish and South African accents.
Their website had this to say:
“To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound just like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree. The “Newzild” dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It’s official,”
According to the website, Afrikaans is a “hugely popular accent with many people across the globe thanks to their unique tones and slang”, while the Irish “lilting jibe” has people around the world falling in love with the accent.
