Climate & Seasons

New Zealand is a year-round destination with a temperate climate. It never gets extremely hot or extremely cold and every season has something special to offer.


September, October, November

Vibrant and uplifting, New Zealand bursts with new life in spring. Colourful flowers bloom amongst the lush greenness and spring lambs abound.  The country''s waterfalls multiply with magnificent effect. Such a fresh, happy atmosphere during spring makes this an inspiring time of year to visit.                                                           


December, January, February

Sunshine hours are high, days are long and nights are mild.  Summer is an excellent time for outdoor activities.  Summer activities tend to make the most of the sun, sea and sand. New Zealand’s many beaches and lakes are perfect for cooling down during the summer months. The native Pohutukawa tree blooms a vibrant red and fresh summer fruits are plentiful.


March, April, May

If you prefer sunny days but less crowds, autumn is a good time to travel.  Long, sunny days tend to linger long into autumn and New Zealand enjoys some of the most settled weather of the year.  One of the most special things about autumn in New Zealand is the colours.  Brilliant hues of yellow, gold and orange are set against a sky that seems too blue to be true.


June, July, August

Winter snow only adds to New Zealand’s already dreamy scenery. Soft blankets of white soften the volcanic mountains and trickles of water become dramatic cascading waterfalls. Cool, crisp, sunny days are perfect for getting out and about, followed by an evening in front of a log burning fire or a soak in an outdoor hot pool under starry night skies.)
