Pick a New Zealand location below to see what the weather will be like throughout the year.

While the very top of the country has subtropical weather during summer, the inland alpine areas of the South can be as cold as -10°C (14°F) in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperatures. We do have distinct seasons though, so it’s well worth taking time to match your hopes and desires to the best season and location.
