I'm in the very early planning stages of a trip to NZ in February 2019 (yes, I know - planning ahead, but its part of a 7 month trip, so there's a lot to plan!).
I'll be travelling with my husband and 2 kids (7 and 8). We have about a month, and planned to split it roughly 20 days in SI and 10 days in NI.
I was thinking of doing a figure of 8 circuit in SI, something like this....
1-2 Arrive Christchurch from Melbourne. Explore
3 Mt Cook
6 Te anau
7 Daytrip to Milford Sound
I wanna travel to New Zealand with working visa. I was just wondering what kind of job situation there is?
Does anyone has any experience? Is it easy to get a job or is the money good? Can I really save some money in there?
Because I have heard that NZ is very expensive and wages are not so good..

Flights are booked but everything else is up for discussion at present.
We have been to NZ before - in the distant past I passed through Wellington, and in Feb 2013 we spent a few nights in…
Hi guys I'm an 18 year old male who just finished high school and is getting prepared for a gap year, better said, my first time traveling alone such a long time. As a first destination I proposed New Zealand even though I know nothing about it. I've set up a 2 weeks travel to new Zealand arriving first in Auckland but I really really want to see both out and north islands, the only problem is that I've read that two weeks is not enough for this kind of travel, also one big issue is that…
I will be driving from Queenstown to Christchurch in December/January, with husband and 1.5 year old. I am having trouble deciding between driving via West coast (stopping in Wanaka, Glaciers, Hokitika, Arthurs pass) or driving via Lake Tekapo inland (stopping Wanaka, Mount Cook, Omarama). We want to keep drive time per day to a minimum and have a few 2 night stops along the way. We won't be doing an serious tramping (maybe a few short walks or kayaks and some cycling) so are looking…
