At the same time the colours are changing outdoors and thee are really picturesque landscapes, particularly in the South Island (Queenstown, Wanaka are absolutely beautiful this time of the year).

New Zealand is a great place to live not only for lifestyle but for jobs, education and purchasing a property.
