      1. where is the best place to buy wine and beer in queenstown, southland, westcoast, around picton?
      2. Are the supermarkets the same pricing for meat (beef, chicken beasts)? Which supermarket chain has the best deals?
      3. Is BBQ in NZ charcoal or electricity ? What do I need to buy if I want to do BBQ at my accomodation? For eg, BBQ utensils, butter? oil? seasoning? etc Do I hv to stock all these items up? What are the basic seasoning provided there?
      4. Is coffee provided at guesthouse, backpackers, hostels in the morning? I would like to hv coffee before I drive to wake up and need to get coffee somewhere if possible!

      OR can someone tell me what are the things I hv to stock up at the supermarket before I start my road trip becos these items are not provided at any accomodation in NZ.

      5. I intend to rent a car to stock up at a cheaper price for travel. I hv heard of fuel savings programme at supermarket in NZ and wonder what is this about?

      6. Where can I buy bluff oysters if I am not intending to drive up to bluff. I would love to try local seafood, and so far I have only heard of bluff oysters. Can someone tell me more on what type of local seafood and fish I should buy and try at local supermarket? I heard NZ has lots of such good food and I am getting hungry reading alone! THANKS.

      Bus from Palmerston North To tauranga

      by craic Online Now Mar 19, 2010 at 8:26 AM

      I might get the chance of a weekend in tauranga - good oh - so I checked the naked bus and they have reasonable fares but it is quite a long trip. This may be however because they have one change. Perhaps you have an hour to stroll around somewhere interesting - like matamata maybe.

      But I cannot get the site to tell me where the change will be.

      Can you help?

      A couple of questions

      by craic Online Now Nov 23, 2009 at 7:30 PM

      Hi - Is the train station close to the centre of the city in Palmerston North?

      Also, can I use my Australian seniors card for cheaper fares etc or as I am still a NZ citizen could I perhaps register for a local card?

    • Labour Day

      by Englischer Online Now Jul 30, 2008 at 9:49 AM

      Hi everyone, my wife and I will be staying in Palmerston North over the Labour Day weekend while we attend the rail centenerary celebrations at Fielding.

      On Labour Day itself, will the town be open as normal (shopping, bars, restos etc.) as we would like a quiet day before heading off for Auckland on the steam special on Tuesday 28th Oct.?

      Failing that, any suggestions as to how to spend the day without travelling on trains would be appreciated by my long suffering wife!
