Check the weather before you go
The weather in New Zealand can change from a warm sunny day to freezing rain in a short time, particularly in the high country. It is most important to check the long range forecast before you leave home. Always carry adequate wet weather gear regardless of the forecast. These are just three of the many sites available to get up to date weather advice for planning your trip.
