Auckland in August is springtime!
A northern-hemisphere-domiciled friend commented that August in New Zealand is late winter and so must be pretty cold – happily this is not so!
In New Zealand it’s very much spring – new lambs and calves, trees coming into leaf – nothing beats seeing the great oaks in the Auckland Domain cover themselves in green.
And as we are scientists and need data, daytime temperatures average 15 degrees Celcius (60 degrees Fahrenheit) and even if you plan to visit Christchurch (average August daytime temperature 12 degrees Celcius) it’s not going to be cold.
