New Zealand Self Drive
New Zealand is perfect for a self-drive vacation. It is long and narrow (similar in size to the state of Colorado) and at any given point, you are no farther than 70 miles from the ocean.
The tremendous diversity of its topography is comparable to an entire continent. Within a few hours travel you can go from subtropical beaches to alpine glaciers, from fiords to rainforests and from cosmopolitan cities to great tracts of wilderness. With so much to see and do, we recommend that you allow at least two weeks to explore this extraordinary country.
Any visitor may drive in New Zealand, using a recognized driving permit (Canadian or U.S. licence or an International Driving Permit) for a maximum period of 12 months from date of arrival in New Zealand or until the expiry of the licence, whichever is the earlier.
New Zealand highways (in the main) are of a high standard; main highways are sealed and offer no difficulty for motorists from overseas. Those routes not sealed are generally well-graded and maintained. Visiting drivers can generally expect to average 90 km per hour during a day's drive in New Zealand.
A drive-on/drive-off service operates several times daily between Picton and Wellington (approx. 3.5 hours). Advance bookings are recommended especially during peak periods (December, January, February, public and school holidays).
