Welcome to Tourism New Zealand’s April product update. It seems a little bit funny that we here in the Southern Hemisphere are pulling out our rain jackets, stocking up on firewood, and deciding on richer recipes and full bodied wines in preparation for autumn when we know you all in the North are getting ready for summer! But for many visitors, this is the best time to visit New Zealand.
