New Zealand is a great destination to visit all year round. It has four distinct seasons, which are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring falls between September to November, summer from December to February, autumn from March to May and winter from June to August.

During the summer there is plenty of sunshine with temperatures reaching 20-30°C.

Don’t be put off from visiting during the winter (colder) months as they still tend to be relatively mild with temperatures continuing to reach 10-15°C in some parts. Considering that the two islands stretch almost 2,000km (1,240 miles) from north to south, it is not surprising that you can experience a very different climate in different parts of the country. The Northern tip of the country is subtropical, while the south is temperate and can be quite cold in winter.
