    How long or short a trip needed to secure at least one property. That is, all the research, finance and legal.

    When Dave and I went over for the first time we stayed just under a week.

    We hired a car and drove a long, long way. Just on that, travel times in NZ are a lot longer than in Aus for two reasons:

    1. Generally, the roads are not as good or well maintained; and

    2. There are far more hills and corners which cuts down your top speed.

    Really though, your length of time on the ground will depend on what you want to achieve. I would definitely have a plan (however sketchy) and try to do some research on the Internet about various towns and areas before going over.

    Remember that regional NZ is not as populated as here, and that there are many smaller communities (7,000 to 13,000) with further satellite and feeder towns.
