Health geography in Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) has had a major impact on international sub-disciplinary debates. It is timely to celebrate our domestic health geography achievements and alert ourselves to the challenges ahead. This reflection article provides a brief overview of Aotearoa NZ's maturing health geography community and includes the reflections of a panel discussion held during the bi-annual NZ Geographical Society conference in 2016. We argue that the eclectism of health geography in NZ and beyond is both the sub-discipline's major strength and challenge.
