It's been a very wet winter this year - I have only spent one other winter here and it wasn't like this at all. I was talking to some Kiwis last night and they also said its not normally this bad. I think once it gets to September the weather should improve.

Which hostel did you choose in the end?

The one winter I spent in Auckland was gloriously sunny most of the time. May and June were the wet months then, but even they got barely 1-2 rainy days a week...

I think it's a world-wide thing. It's been raining here in Montreal for over a month. July had 2 - count 'em, 2 - sunny days. Yeesh.

I have been there three times in the Jan/Feb period (middle of their summer). I have had brilliant sunshine and I have had a fair bit of rain. It is potluck, like the British summer. I take an umbrella and ignore the weather.

1999 I was in Queenstown and had brilliant sunshine. A week later when I was in Auckland, they had boats in the main street in Queenstown due to flooding.
