New Zealand Packing List Tips by fishandchips Top 5 Page for this destination
New Zealand What to Pack: 53 reviews and 24 photos
Luggage and bags: Depending which direction you come from will dictate how many bags you can take. Via the USA you are allowed 2 bags with a 23kg (50lb) max & via Asia it's one bag. Be careful here as overweight luggage charges can be expensive.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: These items are going to depend greatly on what you intend to do. New Zealand has some stunning tracks to go tramping (hiking) so sturdy shoes/boots are a must for this activity. For the Urban tramper a good pair of walking shoes is recommended - especially those that can be dressed up (I travel light myself so like multi use items). New Zealand summers can be cooler than you'd like, especially in the evening (though we get some hot ones!!) so do bring something warm and a shower proof jacket so you're not caught out.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: New Zealand is a clean green country with safe water though you'd be advised to bring some squeeze on hand cleaner as public toilets don't always have adequate washing facilities. We have a 240v power supply with three pronged plugs that may be different to your home country. Most devices from the USA will not work here (I believe that you have a 115v supply) so be careful.
Photo Equipment: If you have a digital camera make sure you have enough memory or an external back-up device. You can always get Internet cafes to burn your photos onto CD as an alternative.
