What do things cost?
To give you a general idea of what things cost in New Zealand we have listed a few commonly purchased items and the average price you will pay for them in New Zealand.
The cost of items will vary within New Zealand, in remote locations which are often the most scenic, the cost of transporting goods and the sparse population results in a higher price for items like food and petrol.
