Travel Resources

Meet all those little things that made my trip.

Along my trip through New Zealand I used a lot of what I call “Travel Resources”. It can be everyday items, websites or books... things that I interacted with regularly or not and that helped me during my trip. It is a bit of a free for all, if I think of something, I’ll put it here.

The goal is to give you my take on each of them and give you an unusually insight on a working holiday visa experience in New Zealand. You of course will not need to use all those or may use different ones but knowing what you will encounter may be helpful.

Websites and other things

The Department Of Conservation of New Zealand is in charge of all National parks and reserves of New Zealand, basically, everything that is green and looks awesome! The DOC’s website showcase their work in the country along with the work of their volunteers (you should consider volunteering for them during your gap year here!) illustrated by amazing pictures.

Their website also has quite a lot of useful info and services including:

  • Trail conditions
  • Weather updates
  • Maps
  • Hut booking system

And much much more… Make sure to bookmark it (Along with my website too).
