When to go

December to February is Summer and is a fantastic time to explore the great outdoors whether it be at the beach, hiking or cycling. March to May is Autumn and is a little cooler and an optimal time for going out to hike. June to August is Winter and perfect for snow sports or hike through snow capped mountains. Spring time is from September to November and there is still time for some snow sports.


There is a reciprocal health care agreement between Australia and New Zealand that provides Australians access to government medical facilities and care. However this does not cover existing health conditions or any additional costs such as accommodation, flights or repatriation back to Australia, this does not replace a need for travel insurance.

Packing List

Don't forget to pack insect repellent (with DEET) for sandflies (female black flies) if you're travelling on the west coast of the South Island, they are similar to mosquitoes and give a nasty bite. Learn More
