New Zealand Autumn means lovely moderate temperatures where people are still going on holiday, getting away for long weekends.
At the same time the colours are changing outdoors and there are really picturesque landscapes, particularly in the South Island (Queenstown, Wanaka are absolutely beautiful this time of year).
Easter falls early at the beginning of April when we will get a well deserved break. 25th April is one of the most commemorative and emotional anniversaries in New Zealand and Australian history - 100th Anniversary of ANZAC. We all deeply feel for our lost Anzacs at Gallipoli.
New Zealand is a great place to live not only for lifestyle but for jobs, education and purchasing a property. Firstly Job Opportunities - unemployment in February 2015 was 5.7% (compared to 6% in January 2014).

Interest Rates - No change from Reserve Bank since July 2014 (economists predict no change to the cash rate for 2015) . Reserve Bank Governor advised there will be no removal of the LVR (loan to valuation of property) 80% threshold restriction in the near future.
