Public Holidays NZ

If you are planning your trip, you should probably be aware that some of your travel may include Public Holidays.  It is no biggie, but some service industries may charge a Public Holiday surcharge, for example, 15% may be added to a restaurant bill.  Also shops and supermarkets, especially in smaller towns and villages, may be shut for the day or close earlier than on normal days.

We also have Regional Anniversary Days.  If you want to check Regional Anniversary days and Public Holidays, please go to publicholiday.co.nz
