Hi I'll be in Queenstown during the last week of September, and I was wondering how the weather is gonna be there. I've a couple of questions: 1. Is there gonna be snow on the roads as I need to decide to rent a 4X4 or a 2 wheel drive? 2. What is the temperature like so that I pack accordingly? Thanks in advance, for answering my questions. Cheers /Naveen
September is the transition period to spring in NZ. Hence it is not likely for you to encounter snow at all in lower regions and a 4x4 is not really necessary. Even in winter, you don't need a 4x4. Just a good car with snow tires when necessary but we are talking only about driving up the mountains.
