Weather and climate in NZ - moving through the seasons

Christmas in Summer anyone? Tis’ the season for sunny beach days, adventures on the water, beautiful bush walks, mountain hiking and much much more. You really can't beat a Kiwi Summer!

Even when Summer fades to Autumn, the days are still warm, and that means beach swims through March and well into April in some parts of the country. Bush walks and hiking are also great options.

The Winters are less harsh in NZ, with temperatures dipping to between 12 – 16°C.
Snow sports galore, Queenstown and Wanaka in the South Island and the Central Plateau in the North Island are the most popular spots for skiing and snowboarding. The highest snowfall in these locations is usually throughout July and August.

It’s the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, and there is often spring skiing available at some ski fields too. You’ll find New Zealand’s countryside full of bouncing lambs and spring blossoms.
