Re: Things to buy outside of NZ to bring with flight?

Most items are available, but NZ is maybe a little short choice for clothes. I would suggest that you may be visiting Kathmandu frequently for lots of outdoor wear, they have frequent sales as well...

Re: Car advice

Far better to buy in New Zealand. There is a great choice of imported Japanese car on offer at very decent prices in Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranaga. You may get hit with a hefty fine/cost if...

Air New Zealand - Lightening Strike

How common is it for a plane to have a lightening strike here. I'm wondering if this is an all too common excuse to cancel a flight when all seats are not taken. Then their obligations are ended....

Re: Has anybody brought in seeds to NZ?

I would not even attempt to bring seeds, I declare my Yorkshire Tea bags and any food, sweets or drink even when wrapped and processed just to be on the safe side.

Stargazing

What a perfect night for watching the sky. I didn't get many chances to watch a perfectly clear sky in the UK. The surroundings are quiet, the sky is just about jet black except for the distant light...

Re: Calling all Wellingtonians (?) - suggestions please

Re: Ideas for places to visit during reccie please

As in the above post, you should try Huka Falls, New Zealand (http://www.hukafalls.com/) too, it's free at present and no silly car parking charges.

Talking Dental Costs

Re: New Zealand much larger than i expected

What a great thread, I've already used it elsewhere.

Re: Christmas in the shops the past 3 weeks or more.

Bunnings were the first in Rotorua that I noticed. Maybe next year we should have a thread contest to note the first retailer to start in NZ.
