Weather? When is the best time to go?

Around now is a great time to go. Its very sunny here at the moment. Great weather.
Late October to early March. December, January and February are our summer months.
Definitely Dec, Jan, Feb. Even heading in to March is decent weather.
Depends on what kind of weather you enjoy. I have heard that Arrowtown (in south island) is best in autumn. But I would personally travel around Dec-March. It’’s pleasant during the day (nowadays its hot), and at night sometimes you can do without a light jumper. Summer is a good time to come. Avoid winter at all costs unless you’re into skiing. And anyway, winter just means more clothes to carry.
