Where to live/work: totally depends on what you want to do and what skills you have, but you have seasonal work in places like Nelson/Marlborough or down in Central Otago in the South Island, or Hawkes Bay in the North. If you want to be in a bigger city you could try your luck in Christchurch, Wellington or Auckland.

Wellington is loads of fun and there are good temping opportunities if that's what you're after. If you want one of the bigger cities in NZ that would be my suggestion :)

Hope that helps!
