NZ Weather & Seasons

NZ weather is one of the country’s greatest assets. It’s fair to say NZ weather in most places doesn’t have the extremes of most climes. The New Zealand climate is mostly temperate however subtropical conditions exist in the far north and on the Coromandel Peninsula. As you would imagine, the NZ weather in summer is usually the most reliable. The average maximum temperature ranges between 18-30ºC (64-86ºF). Because New Zealand is long and narrow, the temperature is normally about 5ºC (41ºF) higher in the far north of the country than in the far south.
