New Zealand enjoys some of its most settled temperatures and the landscape changes into colorful fall scenery, especially in Central Otago and Hawkes Bay. Many photographers and film crews go to New Zealand at this time of year to capture the exquisite light and intense colors of the season.
During fall skies are blue, fruit harvests are underway and there are also lots of fun events happening. There are warm days and cool nights and fall is ideal for enjoying the great outdoors including fishing, golf, horse riding, hiking or tasting the new season's wine.
The intense heat of summer has eased and days are comfortably mild in fall. You may need an extra layer of clothing in the evening and will find temperatures cooler as you travel from north to south.
