Working in New Zealand

Working holidays mean you can stay longer and spend what you earn on awesome experiences, like….bungees in Queenstown, island exploring in Waiheke, search for glowworms in Waitomo caves or take your chances and trek into the land of Mordor!

There’s free stuff too that only takes your legs to see and explore, think…sandboarding the dunes in Cape Reinga, hug New Zealand’s largest living Kauri tree in Tane Mahuta, dig your own hot pool at Coromandel’s Hot Water Beach or play peek-a-boo with dolphins and seals in Kaikoura.
