If you are going camping in a van consider visiting the two charity shops in Glen Innes (Suburb of Auckland). We came away with very good pots, pans, duvet, wineglasses, etc at very good prices. We also bought a used single burner stove, but all the campgrounds have kitchens and most have BBQ's, so we haven't used it once!

On a hot day you'll want to cool off. Nothing better than a dip in a clean mountain river. Payne's Ford in Golden Bay has a great pool nearby - complete with overhanging climbing, rocks to jump from and a swing into the deep.

Don't accept that you have to pay to do everything in NZ. It does feel in places like every opportunity to make a buck is being exploited, to the disadvantage of tourists, but with research you can find great free/low cost alternatives i.e Curio Bay in the Catlins
