I'm going to be in NZ for a few weeks in June. Anybody here been there before?

I mainly plan to jump off of a few very high things and do a lot hiking.

Well, I only know a few things about New Zealand, but I've only been to Australia. Have a great trip!

I went on vacation there last year. Did a two-week stint on both islands. If you're going hiking, then make sure to bring waterproof shoes and a raincoat. The weather can get unpredictable over there, so it's best to be prepared.

Look up "Canyon Swing" and see if that's something you want to try. Otherwise, you have plenty of bungee opportunities.

Also, Wellington (Peter Jackson's hometown) is windy as hell, but incredible to visit. Just make sure you don't depart from that airport.

My plan right now is to start on the southern island, landing in Christchurch, doing some stuff there, then going to Queenstown, doing some stuff there, then eventually ferrying to Wellington and seeing WETA things. I'd like to spend as much time as possible enjoying the natural beauty of the place, but I am concerned about the winter catching up to me.

Hopefully they've managed to rebuild Christchurch by the time you get there. Our group couldn't do much since parts of it were still devastated by the quake.
