My friend and I are planning on moving to New Zealand at the end of August, and we were wondering if anyone knew of any place that would allow us to work there in exchange for accommodation at or around Queenstown preferably. If anyone could help us out in any way, that would be so amazing.

Hey Jill!!!

Check out this website:

Go to their notice board section and you can see postings for hostels that are wanting help in exchange for accomodation. I bet there will be tons of places that need help in Queenstown as it's still winter time. I will also be in New Zealand this summer/winter. I leave at the end of June and I think I will be in Queenstown for a bit myself as well. Hope you have fun!!!

hi, also have a look at, I wish I had found it before I did my WHV in oz....have used it in Italy, and will be using it also in New Zealand from august onwards. You have to sign up(free) to view it and be a premier member(at a slight cost) to view contact details of the hosts, but it has lots of different hosts willing to give you a bed and food for a few hours work. :)
