You are going at a good time! New Zealand summer starts in about November. If you have time, start from the North Island and then make your way down. By the time you reach the South Island it will be getting warmer and warmer, spring into summer. A good hint when your travelling: If you ever find you are cold or don't have the proper clothes, go to a second hand shop and "recycle" some which will be cheap and make it easier to give them away when you don't need them.

Enjoy! New Zealand is awesome!

Last summer in NZ was the coldest in 17 years and waaaay down South it is still quite cold in Oct. and November. New Zealand does not have one climate at one time. It can be sunny all summer in Nelson and raining three quarters of the time in Southland and the West Coast.

There's a song you may have heard by Crowded House, a New Zealand band, entitled "Four Seasons in One Day". Well, that pretty much sums up any given day in New Zealand.

I'm from New Zealand and I spoke to my Dad in late August - supposedly the dead of winter. He said it was a beautiful warm sunny day, yet the day before had been rainy, windy and cold. Although November is technically summer, it could still potentially be quite rainy.

So, be prepared for anything. As a rule of thumb, the North is warmer than the South, but even that is not anything you can set your watch by.

What's the weather like in NZ at the moment? Wet. Since the 16th of September it has rained/showered at least once every day in Auckland. Today the rain has been torrential. This isn't typical October weather but be prepared!
