Hey, can someone give me a brief summary of this? I don't quite understand it. I'm planning to head to NZ in june/july to try out snowboarding and to experience snow for the first time but my parents say its quite expensive. This certainly would seem to help me as I just graduated from poly.

a working holiday would require you to work and travel at the same time.
So basically you are working in a foreign country and using ur income to supplement your travelling and living expenses there. NZ is a very popular destination because of the minimum wage -NZ14/hr as well as the friendly people, diverse landscape, cultures and many beautiful natural scenery to visit.

That being said, usually it will only be realistic for long term travel and not short term. Ultimately, it depends on your luck on finding a job as well as your willingness to adapt and be flexible with your plans. If you are only planing to experience snow for fun with not much money in your pocket, NZ might not be a good destination.

lol dont expect to buy nice fashionable stuff in auckland. most brands here are aussie or local brand and they are not very fashion forward people.
If you wanna buy winter clothes and not picky about designs can go to warehouse (cheap ass stuff). Or most nz people go thrift shopping - (buying second hand clothes). There are tons of thrift shop here and its up to you to find a gem. I seen a few decent winter jacket for 20nzd but it might not be your cuppa tea.

If you wanna get brand new nice winter coldwear prices are about the same.

no worries! Actually you can shop from taobao as well. I got my winter wears from taobao, pretty decent quality for the price I paid. When are you coming to auckland exact?
