hi, i'm coming to a wedding in wellington and afterwards will stay for a few days. how should i pack? i'm also going to Sydney, so i'm going to ask in that forum as well.
Wellington is much cooler that Sydney, so a few warmer items plus a lightweight rain jacket should be included in your bags. "Kiwis" as New Zealanders are affectionately known as are also very relaxed when it comes to clothing, so again be comfortable.
