New Zealand in June - Things to Do & Reasons to Visit

Is it your first time in New Zealand and not sure what to do? Check out Best Bits – Things to Do as you sort out the best month to visit New Zealand.

Weather in New Zealand is four seasons in one day. Aotearoa New Zealand is several skinny narrow islands isolated in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Glorious day throughout the year is a promise together with the option of rain throughout the year. 

Seasons are the opposite to Europe, United Kingdom, North America (northern hemisphere) creating a great winter escape for our neighbours in the Far East and beyond. Peak season is summer, December to February.

June is one of the quietest visitor months with great travel deals to be had. Apart from probably not enough snow on the ground for snow fields to open it’s a great month for photographers intent on capturing New Zealand’s magnificent winter landscapes and night skies.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN JUNE IN NEW ZEALAND?

In NZ June is not as busy as July and August with winter tourists. For snow lovers June is increasingly unlikely to have enough snow on the ski slopes to dust off the skis or snowboard. Mountain passes are likely to be drivable without snow chains however be prepared especially towards the end of June.
