Do's and Don'ts in NZ....???

24 Nov 2011 AlexG asked


I am going to NZ for my first contiki tour and just wanted to know some general advice from past travellers like spending money, what to pack, what great restaurants/places you stumbled upon while you were there?? I am going in June/July so I know it'll be winter. Any advice or tips from past travellers will be great :)

    Hahaha Dundon. Just saying, the roads can zig-za a bit so bring some aspirin or mints. Or a lemon (apparently holding on to it helps travel sickness). I’d bring a rain jacket and heaps of clothes…just because winters can be quite cold and wet. Queenstown was hell expensive and a total contrast to Dunedin (Dundon), because there’s a lot of students living there.
