Have your say: Which town has the best weather in NZ?


It often stirs up a fierce debate when you ask which is the best place to live in New Zeaand – and often it boils down to who has the best weather.

It’s entirely subjective – some think sunny and dry is the best, while others prefer humid and wet.

So – which town, city or place is the best to live in weather wise?

Nelson for sure! Perfect weather especially in Feb, March.

For best year round NZ weather my vote goes to Kawerau in the B.O.P.

When it’s not raining (as it does everywhere at some time) or too humid… I have to vote Auckland.

And woohoo, my pic on the main page 🙂

The sunniest 3 towns – Nelson, Blenheim and Motueka (order not certain from the very close stats).
