The Best Time To Visit New Zealand

Bear in mind that the seasons are the opposite of the seasons on the Northern Hemisphere.

The best time to visit New Zealand is February to April. Peak season is Summer (December-February) so expect crowds, especially at the beaches. Springtime (September-November) is also a good time to visit.

Have Fun this Summer... Staycations are in!
