The New Zealand accent has been crowned the 'world's sexiest' after an international travel website polled their 1.5 million readers. 


The Big 7 Travel readers voted for their favourite accents over the past month and while New Zealand led the top 50, it was closely followed by South Africa, Ireland, Italy and Australia respectively.


'The "Newzild" dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It's official,' the accent description read.



Second on the list was South African for 'their unique tones and Saffa slang' followed by Irish (whether it be a 'Jamie Dornan-esque Northern Irish accent or a lilting Cork jibe') and Italian.


Australians earned fifth place for their ability to pronounce words 'long and slow'. 


The rich sounds and harsh tones of the Scottish lilt were enough to give the kilt-wearing natives a spot in the top ten alongside French, Spanish, U.S Southern and Brazilian Portuguese. 


Despite the fact Timeout.com voted English as the sexiest accent last year, the Queen's English earned a measly 12th place on the list after Czech. 


'The "Newzild" dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It's official,' the website wrote (Auckland pictured)


The New York tone, which was described as 'fast and hypernasal' came in at 44th, India's 'easy on the ears' accent was 26th and Jamaica's vibrant twang was 17th.


To round out the top 50 was the 'least favourite Slavic' tongue of Croatian.  


With over 7,000 accents worldwide it's no mean feat that New Zealand came first, and they're more than likely going to use this win to their advantage for the next 12 months.
