"Respect the Sun's Powers at all times!" Top 5 Page for this destination New Zealand Packing List Tip by kiwi

New Zealand What to Pack: 53 reviews and 24 photos


Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Walking shoes, you will do a lot of walking.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: SUNSCREEN is a must. However I have found it best to buy in NZ. Selection and price are good down here. After all we do have to live with the hole in the ozone, so sunscreen is a fact of life. Some schools provide it for their students.
SUNGLASSES!! The UV rays are so strong down here you need sunglasses. Protect your eyes and they will feel much better. Without sunglasses your eyes get irritated and tired. I wear them at all times even on dull days.

Photo Equipment: Plenty of film!! Good to buy dutyfree upon entering the country.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
