Packing Tips

Auckland and the North Island of New Zealand are packed with beauty and adventure at every turn. You’ll find beautiful beaches up north in the Bay of Islands (so pack your swimsuit) and elsewhere you’ll find adventure destinations, hiking trails, kayaking spots and much more.

The important thing to remember about New Zealand is the sheer variety on offer – so try and pack for every occasion. You’ll probably want a few smart outfits for dining out in the city of Auckland, but concentrate mainly on comfy clothes that you’ll enjoy being active and exploring in.

Good quality walking boots are a must-have, as are waterproofs, wind-proofs and general items of clothing that will be flexible come rain or shine.

Another packing tip, especially for the North Island (and Bay of Islands) is bug repellent. New Zealand is unfortunately home to the dreaded Sand Fly and trust us – you don’t want to be bitten by one during your time on holiday.

Weather in Auckland & North Island

The weather in Auckland is classed as subtropical – meaning that summertime is warm and humid and winter is mild and damp. It’s one of the sunniest locations in New Zealand and snowfall in the city is pretty rare. Going north of the city towards the Bay of Island, and the weather stays similar – and gets warmer and more tropical.

If you head south of the city however towards Wellington, the climate changes slightly so expect lower temperatures, and less humidity.
