Working holiday in NZ - any advice? :D

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Working holiday in NZ - any advice? :D

I'm flying into Auckland on 30th Apr, and my visa permits me to stay in NZ for not more than six months, work not more than three months.

There seem to be so many places to go and so many things to do that I'm not sure how to plan my route/travels (I must end up in Auckland again by 20th Oct, sadly).

If I want to travel around NZ by bus/train, does anyone have any advice on how I should plan? Also, would love to meet up with anybody travelling around the same time since I'll be travelling alone :D

Oh, and I intend to bring a suitcase instead of backpack :|

Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!!

Hey Rosash, i'll be in Wellington from the 29th of April for approx 2 weeks then starting to travel around myself. Feel free to meet up and see if our plans are similar.

Hey Gavin! I sent you a pm, not sure if it works though. Keep in touch!
