Does NZ allow left hand drive vehicles in their country?


Left hand and left side of the road... We did this for 2 weeks, picked the rig 26' class B up in Auckland and drove to the south island to sky dive at the Franz Josef Glacier from 20k ft.

20,000ft Kea Jump
Experience the thrill of NZ’s Highest Skydive from 20,000ft (85+ seconds freefall) above the Westland & Aoraki/Mt Cook National Parks.

Our first jump and the entire family went including the 12yr old! Life changing and wouldn't trade those memories for anything.

Those roads can get super windy, twisty and rainy... The trucks pull 40' triples, on 2 lanes at speed and there was one, one way bridge that handled trains as well.... hahahah Would do it again in a min, you are going to have a blast! Thanks for taking me back.

Check out these pics.

Our thought is to go to Maui and kaui for a month each, then NZ for 3 months, North and South islands, then tasmania for a month. Maybe Austin for a month, then end in Cook Islands for a month. Instead of down by Key West for the winter. Well do a pacific adventure. Have enough frequent flyer miles for most flights to be free. Can't wait.


Wow! Hope you closely figured the cost of this 8-9 month trip!! Sounds like a very expensive one.

The thing that's going to help. We've been saving our frequent flyer miles for 15 years while rving the US. So most flight will be taxes
