times of year open

I am a kiwi living in dallas. I am planning a trip to NZ in 2011 and need to know your operation hours and days before making plans. christmas is too expensive to fly, so what other times of the year are ok for visiting outdoor places without getting rained on every day. have not been home for for approx 6 yrs.

Have a look at our <a href="">World Weather Guide</a> to get an idea of the rain patterns, but summer is probably going to be more pleasant if you're planning to spend a lot of time outside. Have you considered January or February? February is when the kids go back from school holidays so you might be able to get some cheaper flights then.

Opens at 10AM each day, but closing times vary depending on the season - you need to see where you're sliding. In summer it's open until 9PM, in winter it closes as early as 5PM.
