Yes I have been and my advice would be: 'Go, you will have an amazing time'.

My advice would be the same as Steve's!

I think you'll have the time of your life out there. If you want to know anything specific just ask, as I lived there for 5 years and might be able to help.

Haha! That's what I'm hoping Steve!

Bex, where about did you live? My main concern is getting work. I did oz on a whv and found it hard to get work. Mainly because I'm not qualified in a specific area, just got loads of retail experience. I spent the majority of time in Sydney too which didn't help haha.

I lived in Auckland, mainly because I was looking for IT work and that's where most of work in that industry is. As long as you're flexible I don't think you should have a problem as the NZ economy is ok I think. If you're looking for retail work and are in Auckland, apart from the shops in the city centre, Newmarket would be a good area for you to look, and there are several larger malls in the suburbs; St Lukes is a good one.
