The Do’s and Don’ts of a New Zealand Road Trip

New Zealand Road Trip

There are many ways to experience the lush, ridiculous beauty of New Zealand, but I’d argue the best way is on the road.

With a population of 4 million people on a good day, it’s understandable that New Zealand doesn’t have a mass easy public transport system like you can find around more urban destinations. It’s ok, we don’t want that anyways. Besides, let’s not mix words here; the majority of people coming to New Zealand are coming for the epic landscapes and wild views, right?

Definitely.

And while you can get to the more well-known spots on day trips and what not, the best way to get around is on 4 wheels if you can manage. Some of my favorite surprises in New Zealand happened spontaneously on the road, pulling down a street that piqued my curiosity or stopping at a picnic view point in the middle of nowhere for some sick views.

New Zealand’s real beauty lies in its inaccessibility and remoteness.

Depending on your budget, you can make your dream trip work. Whether you go on a guided tour like what I’ve done in the past or you rent a car or campervan, it’s up to you (more on this in a minute).

Exploring the country by campervan is a classic kiwi pastime, and I finally popped my van cherry this month on a 2 week road trip around New Zealand with Jucy.

If you’re keen to fit right in and see New Zealand like a local, you need a van and a sense of adventure.

I’ve written before about the ins and outs of road tripping in Iceland, and I thought it was high time I shared a similar story for New Zealand, after, you know, a year of road trips packed with trials and errors.

Here are my do’s and don’ts for a New Zealand road trip! Happy trails!

New Zealand Road Trip

Do – pick the right camper or car 

First things first, you gotta pick the right car for your trip. I decided to go with Jucy because they had been capturing my attention with their flashy vans around New Zealand and Australia for the past 11 months. Be prepared for an onslaught of green and purple – we all know how I feel about colors and I that I was probably a rainbow unicorn in a past life.

This young hip company has taken NZ by storm with their catchy logos, budget options and active social media pages. I am a fan of young cool (nontraditional) brands so Jucy was a logical choice since it fit everything I wanted.

They’ve got it all – vans, big and small, budget and fancy cars and SUVs.

I’d say you don’t really need a SUV for most of New Zealand.The only time you might need one is if you are coming in winter and plan to do some serious offroading or go up to some of the more remote club ski fields; some dirt roads might turn to a mudfest or there might be swollen creeks you have to cross – for example, you have no hope of getting to Mt. Aspiring National Park in Wanaka in winter if there’s been rain or snow (and there always is) because there are 9 creek crossings before you get to the parking lot.

But if you get a van or car in winter that’s not 4 wheel drive, be sure to add on snow chains. Those come in handy, and you could be seriously stranded without them. And you’ll need them to get up the ski resort roads since the majority of them are gravel.

Since I was going solo, I didn’t want one of those vans that look like a house, both for the gas expense and also because I didn’t want to drive a tank of a van all by myself over the crazy mountain roads I was hoping to see. Understandable right?

The Jucy Cabana was perfect for me; basically a pimped out, reconverted minivan that sleeps 2, just my size since I like to sprawl. It’s been modified so a bed pulls out from the benches and has a mini kitchen in the trunk. It’s like nothing I’ve seen before, and it comes with all the cooking stuff and bedding that you would need. Curtains come down at night and it can go as fast as a car and doesn’t struggle up hills or mountains, unlike the rest of the campers who I get stuck behind ALL the time.

I’ve done all sorts of road trips and expeditions around New Zealand, but having the freedom to drive around with my house on my back like a turtle was AWESOME! It meant I wasn’t obligated to go anywhere or be somewhere by a certain time and I could just go with the flow. Those are my favorite kind of trips!

Also did you know if you rent a Jucy car or van you get a 6 day ski pass to Treble Cone in Wanaka worth over $600? Holla.

New Zealand Road Trip

The only downside with choosing the small vans is that they don’t plug in and campsites. I found this out the hard way; the conversation went something like this:

Me picking up the van in Queenstown – “So how does the whole plugging in thing work?”
Van attendant – “hahahaha.”
Me – “You’re scaring me. Why are you laughing?”
Van attendant – “The cabanas don’t plug in.”
Me – “Hahahhahaha. Oh no. It’s snowing.”

Not really a problem for most of the year, not being able to plug in means no heat at night, which on the South Island in winter can be, well, not ideal. Totally didn’t do my research! Rookie mistake!

While the first couple of nights were rough, but it was actually fine by the end. Most people don’t always plug in their vans anyways because it costs more. I’ll get to that in a minute.

So just think about the kind of trip that you want to do and get a car or van that fits it.

New Zealand Road Trip

Don’t – abuse the camping system in New Zealand

It’s really important that you understand how the campervan and freedom camping system works in New Zealand and not abuse it. At first I was a bit overwhelmed by it all but it’s actually quite simple. Jucy has a great post about it here.

There are two types of campervans you can rent here – fully self-contained and non-self-contained (indicated by a sticker). The difference is pretty much a toilet. If you have a campervan that DOESN’T have a toilet, you can’t freedom camp. Easy as.

Freedom camping is allowed around most of New Zealand and means you can camp on public land for free as long as you have the right facilities (read – toilet). If you are caught freedom camping without the right van or in a restricted area, it’s a $200 instant fine by the poo police. And trust me, it happens a lot.

I don’t want to get into it too much here for a couple of a reasons, but freedom camping is actually quite controversial in New Zealand. This might be simplistic but the way I see it is that disrespectful foreign tourists combined with increased tourism has changed freedom camping drastically in recent years.

New Zealand Road Trip

For example, you can’t freedom camp anywhere near Wanaka or Queenstown now, which I agree and disagree with.

On the one hand I can understand that because if it was allowed, then there would be way too many people doing it considering how popular these places are, which means there would also be plenty of people abusing it – I’ve heard horror stories.

And it’s not just about having a toilet to use, it’s also about making sure that you don’t light illegal fires or empty the sewage tank in the van in the wrong place (i.e. anywhere), which is what a lot of lazy people end up doing. Can I get a EW gross?!

However, at the same time local councils and such have one thing on their mind, and it’s not preserving the campervan kiwi past time. It’s money. Banning freedom camping means you’ll have to pay to stay somewhere, like a holiday park or hotel, which means more revenue for the town.

New Zealand Road Trip

So where can you camp?

I camped almost the whole trip in holiday parks for a couple of different reasons. Mostly because since it was winter and I was in a smaller van, I wanted to be able to hang out in a heated room in the evenings and work with wifi and plenty of outlets to charge all my crap. Holiday parks have TV rooms, kitchens, (usually) awesome shower facilities.

Unfortunately there are also plenty of people who abuse the holiday park system. Especially in winter in the more remote areas, the office will close at sunset and open the next morning around 10 or 11 if it’s manned at all. There are a lot of people who will arrive late, park there for the night, use the showers and kitchens and then leave early the next morning without paying, ignoring the honor box system. Tsk tsk.

Since it got dark earlier, I wouldn’t usually get to a site before nighttime, and I would just cook my dinner in the kitchens instead of in the back of the van. I also would call in the afternoon to make sure they would leave me a wifi card to use, but that’s not really necessary. In winter, it’s so quiet you don’t need to reserve anything in advance, and you can just show up.

Holiday parks aren’t cheap though. I paid between $20-$30 total a night for 1 person for a non-powered site and wifi ($5-7 for 24hrs). This goes up with more people and if you want a powered site. Personally, I think that’s outrageous to pay that much money to sleep in a van, and I think there should be off season rates. Most of the time I was the only person there.

If I wasn’t working at the same time and didn’t have deadlines, I would have stayed in DOC campsites (significantly cheaper but further out of town and usually in a dead zone for phone service – no 3G eeek!) or in designated campsites with toilets instead and then stayed at a holiday park maybe every 4 or 5 days as a splurge. But alas, my life is controlled by the internets. One of the sacrifices of being a blogger.

**I’ll also mention my friend Matt of Backpacking Matt who is based in Queenstown now runs an awesome site called Planit NZ which as you might have inferred can help plan and book your trips to New Zealand and save you money. Matt helped me out a lot before I moved down here a year ago – tell him I sent you and save 5%!

New Zealand Road Trip

Do – get off the beaten path 

Half of the beauty of New Zealand lies in getting lost and finding your own favorite little spots, and it’s one of the best reasons to get a car.

Oh that road looks interesting, I wonder what’s down there? And 10 minutes later you’re at the most beautiful, remote beach bereft of life except for a couple of sea lions.

Because New Zealand is so sparsely populated, you can get away with winging it and being spontaneous here. There is always a campsite and always somewhere to sleep. Don’t fret!

Don’t – underestimate New Zealand roads

This should probably have been number 1, but seriously, don’t underestimate the roads here. They are crooked, they are winding, they are gnarly, and above all, they are unforgiving.

All the roads are basically one lane in either direction, so that was different for me to get used to. In the US, highways have big medians and dividers between you and oncoming traffic and big break down lanes on the side. Not in New Zealand. Here it’s usually a dotted white line down the middle and either a mountain or a cliff on the sides.

And the more remote roads don’t even have guardrails. Prepare yourself.

I think the kiwi philosophy here is something along the lines of “well, just stay on the road and you’ll be fine.”

Luckily, the max speed limit I’ve seen is 100 kph (63 mph), but it still is a bit disconcerting to be going so fast with traffic going in the opposite direction just next to you, on the left side of the road nonetheless.

The roads, especially around the South Island, needless to say, are nothing like our roads in Virginia haha.

Nothing is straight for one thing, so you always have to be paying attention all the time, and the New Zealand landscape frequently likes to add obstacles to the adventure like landslides, hitchhikers, and sheep, so be on your guard when you’re behind the wheel.

New Zealand Road Trip

That being said, the beauty of New Zealand roads are that they are USUALLY really well labeled, like you would have to be an idiot to get lost and if you have an accident, it’s likely because you weren’t paying attention.

For example, when the road bends, there are massive yellow reflective signs warning you in advance and on the curve to lower your speed. Sometimes they say 85 kph sometimes they say 20 kph. Heed them, always. I’m sure most of those accidents involve people taking huge curves way too fast. Don’t be one of them.

If a road is winding for a long time, there will be yellow curvy road warning signs for a center number of kilometers. If there is road construction, there are “Road Works” signs in orange. If there is ice or snow, it will say ice or snow. If it’s a mountain pass, there will be signs saying it’s closed or open or if chains are required, and there will be pull offs all the way over for you to pull over and put chains on.

New Zealand Road Trip

The one lane bridges, and there are lots of them all have signs with the bigger arrow indicating who has the right of way. There is also some one lane bridge etiquette in New Zealand. It’s standard once you get to the other side and a car is waiting to cross, give them a little wave of acknowledgement to say hey, thanks for not playing chicken with me.

Don’t freak out until you get to a one lane covered bridge south of Greymouth with also shares a track with trains. I’m not joking.

All the towns are well labeled as well with yellow street sign-style signs labeling how far away it is, as well as any cultural, campsite, viewpoint, toilets, picnic tables or really anything interesting is marked.

Seriously, New Zealand loves their labels. They are there for a reason, pay attention.

Do – let faster traffic pass you

It takes a while to get used to the roads in New Zealand. I think it was at least a month before I was zooming around like a local. This means a lot of the time if you’re a tourist, you’ll be going slower. And hey, no worries man.

It’s much better to drive slower and be safe, but it’s important to remember, this isn’t your country and the locals grew up on these roads and are more comfortable on them.

Because the roads are generally one lane in either direction, for someone to pass you, they have to usually cross the dividing lane and pass you in oncoming traffic’s lane, which is allowed, but also, obviously is more dangerous.

On the busier roads, there will be passing lanes built in at certain intervals and of course clearly labeled, but that’s not the case everywhere.

New Zealand Road Trip

New Zealand Road Trip

It took me a while to begin noticing that locals will pull over off the road when they can to let faster cars by. This is usually in chain bays on the mountain passes where bigger cars slow down everyone, or in safety stops on the switchbacks or big curves.

But once you start to pay attention, even though there isn’t really a pull over lane, there will be picnic spots, campsites, viewpoints and even worn out spots on the side where you can slow down (not stop) and pull off or half off the road to let faster traffic pass you. USE THEM. Don’t let a long line of faster cars build up behind you; it can lead to accident, especially on the mountain roads where there are many curves and blindspots, and you could be going the speed limit only to come around a bend and almost run into the back of a long line of cars behind a campervan going 25.

You can always spot the foreign drivers from the locals this way. There’s always one car going 30 km under the speed limit and not letting anyone pass them. Always. New Zealand is way too friendly a place for that kind of oblivious, rude behavior.

Once someone has let you pass them, it’s also customary to give a “beep beep” with the horn and a wave to say thanks.

Don’t – crash into anything when you’re struck by New Zealand’s beauty

A given but bears repeating considering how beautiful New Zealand is. It blinds even the best of us.

It still happens to me.

“Woah look at that glacier…oh crap! Left, Liz, left!!”

**For ideas on the best scenic drives, check out this post from Backpacking Matt, this post from A Dangerous Business and this post from Finding the Universe.

Do – remember to drive on the left 

Oh, and to make things more interesting, they drive on the left here.

When I first arrived, I was batshit terrified to drive on the left, but it’s amazing how quickly you get used to it. You have to be pretty oblivious to forget to stay on the left. Frequently there are enormous arrow pointing you in the right direction on the roads, and in cities with intersections, there are also arrows on the medians pointing you in the right direction. All the roads here are well marked.

That being said, there are people who miraculously do forget to drive on the left when they rent a car here, and they’ve killed people. Do if you think that might be you, do New Zealand a favor and get a bus pass.

I think it becomes second nature quickly, though the only time I’ve consistently noticed people forgetting are on gravel or dirt roads with no markings. How many times have I been going up or down a back road or mountain pass only to come face to face with Asian tourists driving on the right?

3 times in a year. I am not exaggerating. WTF.

Don’t – pull over just anywhere to take a picture

This was the same in Iceland. New Zealand is really really really photogenic, and even now I fight the urge to pull over to take a photo on the side of the road, but do I really need to point out that this is really dangerous for both you and other drivers?

Would you pull over on the side of I-95 in New York for a quick selfie? Probably not. Why would you do it here?

Yes, there is a lot less traffic than in other countries but it’s still there, and you put a whole lot of people at risk just for a photo.

New Zealand Road Trip

I’ve seen a handful of almost near collisions with tourists this year on the side of the road.

One time I was parked on farm road by Whataroa River when another rental pulled over in front of me, not on the farm road and literally parked half on the grass and half on the HIGHWAY and left the driver’s side door wide open ON the highway – I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. His entire family got out of the car and they loitered around running back and forth across the bridge for group pics, almost causing a half dozen accidents.

My friend who I was who is never angry got out and was yelling at them to get off the road and park their car further down, and they were yelling back and waving their arms around in another language. Finally a giant campervan rolled past them and knocked their sideview mirror off and they eventually left.

I was appalled. If you have no common sense and are oblivious to traffic laws, please don’t drive in New Zealand. Please.

And the truth is, now that I’ve traveled all over New Zealand by car, 9 times out of 10 the best shots are not from the side of the road.

They are either a designated outlooks or viewpoints, or down a trail somewhere. There are only 3 roads I know of worth stopping on for a photos and that’s the road out to Mt. Cook village, Hakatere Potts Rd. towards Mt. Sunday, and the road to Milford Sound. All of these except the Mt. Sunday one have lookouts for tourists, and Mt. Sunday is a dirt road with no traffic, literally, so you can just pull off in a field.

Otherwise, there are lookouts, picnic and campsites, farm roads and driveways, and dirt roads all along the highways in New Zealand, and I can pretty much guarantee if you go a little further on, you can find somewhere safe and pretty to pull over. Just think about where you pull over.

New Zealand Road Trip

Do – bring accessories from home

I’m sure more well-researched travelers than myself already realize this, but if you are like me and have a lot of stuff to charge, make sure you bring along one of those USB cigarette charger adapter thingys. They are seriously overpriced here, and more likely than not you have one floating around at home.

Also bring a cable to plug in your iPod or music to the stereo so you can jam out on the long road trips.

If you have a van that doesn’t plug in, you might want to also bring one of those adapters that plugs into the lighter and you can charge a computer or an outlet plug device too. I would have bought one of those too here except they are well over $100 and I’m too cheap for that.

If you get a powered van, they’ll have outlets and the works so you don’t have to worry so much about that.

New Zealand Road Trip

Don’t – be afraid of hitchhikers

Growing up with legends of Ted Bundy and other horrors, I think I can count the number if times I’ve seen hitchhikers in America in 26 years on one hand.

However, since New Zealand is pretty much the safest and friendliest country in the entire world, hitchhiking is still pretty common, especially in summer.

I still haven’t picked up a hitchhiker yet but I definitely plan on helping people out if I can. I think it makes things all the more exciting and can lead to some great stories. Who knows, I might end up hitching around New Zealand one day (just kidding, mom!)

New Zealand Road Trip

Do – pay attention to the weather 

It’s important to check road conditions AND heed all warnings. The weather in New Zealand can be intense, and especially around the South Island, landslides are a common occurrence, especially in winter and after heavy rain.

Once you see the roads here, especially the mountain passes, you’ll understand.

There are 3 passes through the Southern Alps on the South Island to get between the east and west coasts – Lewis Pass, Arthur’s Pass, and Haast’s Pass.

Last winter during a monster storm, a Canadian couple in a campervan drove through the Haast’s Pass at night after they had been warned to turn around only to get hit with a massive landslide and were killed. They found the girl’s body 50km away and they never found her boyfriend. Moral of the story? Do not drive these passes in bad weather and listen to the locals.

New Zealand Road Trip

Haast Pass – source

Arthur’s Pass landslide – source

Since then the Haast Pass has frequent slips and is constantly under maintenance and closed at night. Right now the road through closes at 4pm and reopens at 8am.

I have some friends that work on the pass trying to fix it and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger and more delayed. from what I’ve heard, a road shouldn’t have even been built there, and personally, if it reopens, I don’t think I’d drive through there at night anyways. In fact, I avoid the more “challenging” roads at night here in New Zealand, especially in the rain and definitely not in hurricane-type weather.

On this trip I drove up to Arthur’s Pass through pretty scary weather- it’s one of the only times I’ve been terrified while driving in New Zealand.

After talking with a hotel who told me a foot of rain had fallen over the past 3 days and they were thinking about closing the pass, I headed straight back to the west coast, not wanting to get caught in dangerous area or risk being stranded for a few days, especially considering there was a massive landslide there earlier this year.

New Zealand Road Trip

These roads are actually some of the most scenic views in New Zealand since they go through right of the hearts of the mountains. They are remote and stunning, and they have beautiful walks and sights to visit along the way. Besides, you want to go in the daytime anyways to see them in all their glory.

Just remember how untamed and wild New Zealand can be and don’t take unnecessary risks.

Is it really a big deal if you stay an extra day in Wanaka before heading to the west coast or vice versa while waiting out a storm? Probably not.

Don’t – worry, you’re not alone; everyone falls in love with New Zealand

I don’t think I’ve met a single person who has disliked New Zealand. I think it’s scientifically impossible actually, someone should do a study on it.

In fact, not only do I hear only positive reviews, many people I know absolutely fall head over heels for it, and they keep coming back for more or they never leave. I think that speaks volumes about a country.

And keep in mind, any photo I share, any photo I take pales in comparison to the real thing. New Zealand blows me away every day, in the friendliness of the people and also in the scenery.

So be prepared to fall in love too. Embrace it.

Are you a fan of road trips or camperan trips? What’s your best driving tip? Have you been on a New Zealand roadie?

  1. Just like to point out that you can get those USB car chargers from dollar stores for cheap. If you go to Warehouse or Noel Leeming they’re ridiculously priced though.

    Also…DOC campgrounds are great if you really want to get out there..just beware because the toilets are usually disgusting. Haha.

    1. good tips! thanks! I wish I had known that – I figure many people have them in their cars at home, might as well pack them too. Yeah the DOC sites are a bit questionable haha

  2. We did a roadtrip through NZ over Easter and the honking passers totally threw us off at first! We thought it was anger-honking, which most honking is outside of NZ, and couldn’t figure out why they were mad that we had pulled over. Now I kind of wish people in Europe would do thanks-honks too.

    1. There is plenty of anger-honking in NZ, and lots of one-finger salutes in traffic. Perhaps more in cities than on the highway. I can’t recall ever hearing a NZ passer give a honk. Years ago when I was learning to drive, we were taught to do that as a matter of course.

      Kiwi drivers tend to be very impatient, and generally feel that if the limit is ‘x’, then everyone should be going ‘x’ and if you are not, then you get passed, sometimes when it is not safe.

      The scenery is really great, but the highways are scary. Heed all the things that Liz has to say about them.

      Also, the law says that if you are going slower than others on the highway and more than 5 cars pile up behind you the police can (and DO) stop you and issue tickets to you for obstructing traffic flow. Most tourists don’t seem to know about that. Pulling over to let others pass is the thing to do.

      1. woah that’s a good law to know! I guess I grew up driving on the east coast between washington DC, NYC and Boston, and kiwi drivers are angels in comparison haha. Even in auckland.

      2. I learned to drive in TX more than 50 years ago, and spent a lot of time driving in California before I emigrated to NZ. I cannot agree with your opinion of Kiwi drivers. I find them to be very poorly trained and the most impatient drivers in the world.

        I am guessing you have not tried to get a NZ driving license yet, else you would likely know about that law. I encountered it as a tourist when a cop pulled me over and lectured me while all the traffic behind us went on ahead. He did not give me a ticket in that instance because I was not going particularly slowly – I was doing 90-95.

      3. Wow, I am guessing we have just have had really different experiences driving in the US and NZ. I grew up commuting up and down the east coast of the US in huge cities and you can’t even begin to compare how aggressive US drivers are compared with kiwis. Even in Cali I found drivers aggressive. Here they are so much more respectful and nicer. Some are impatient of course but here people don’t play chicken with you, brake check you, aggressively honk, give the finger or scream obscenities like in the States, and of course you don’t have to really worry about guns either. I mean, it’s a total joke, you can’t even compare driving in Auckland to driving in New Jersey or NYC.

      4. A terrific article but I would agree with Mike’s perception of Kiwi drivers.

        I’m English and have lived in both Australia and NZ, and driven all over continental Europe. I’ve found Kiwi drivers to be the worst by far.

        They seem to be unusually inconsiderate, whether it’s not pulling over for faster traffic, or tailgating you right on the speed limit in an effort to make you pull over. They are also often completely oblivious to what is going on around them, changing lanes on a whim (and without looking) on highways.

        The NZ government attitude is that speeding is the main contributor to road deaths in this country, but in reality it’s the awful quality of driving.

        Loved the rest of the article, by the way—an excellent portrayal of the country through a visitor’s eyes.

      5. I believe a lot of the lack of skill in Kiwi drivers is because many New Zealanders were taught by their families how to drive on a farm, in rural circumstances. They are not always up to the challenges of having other cars on the road.

        The NZ government addressed this in 2011 when they tightened up the rules for getting a drivers licence. More training and actual driving experience is required, and they raised the minimum age from 15 to 16. Testing is now more rigorous for learner drivers.

        I don’t think there has been enough time yet to measure any impact in road safety from these changes.

      6. The difference between ‘thanks-honks’ and ‘anger honks’ is that a thanks-honk is two quick beeps, and an anger honk is a long loud honk. Typically given after passing a campervan you have been following for fifty miles and who has not pulled over, forcing you out into the opposite lane to overtake.

    1. As a kiwi I was really impressed with this. Too many of our kids, teen and young adult drivers who don’t know patience are killed in car accidents here and still drink and drive. Look out for them and give them space even if you think you’re right. Roads here are too unforgiving. Avoid traveling in holiday weekends when Aucklanders are busting to get away and tourist vans are a constant menace. See more than 5 cars behind you… Pull over. Allow time for stops and you’ll have a fantastic holiday. Same car behind you for more than 2 kms… Pull over and let them through.If you don’t you’ll be abused Evey day you drive. Sad reality here. Stay safe using common sense. Happy times abound here if you play by the rules. Thanks for a great blog.
