Sidetracks recommends this tried and tested list of equipment:
Useful and important
Buy in New Zealand
Above all your clothing and gear needs to be weatherproof, hard wearing and easy to dry. You will have plenty of opportunity to use the washing-machines and clothes-dryers provided on tour.
Note: Air New Zealand restricts luggage to 2 main pieces of luggage and 1 piece of hand luggage. For most other airlines the limit is 20kg and 7 kg for hand luggage.
Please consider the limited space in the van, and restrict yourself to one main piece of luggage with a maximum of 20kg for this trip.
Warning: It is illegal to bring any agricultural products into New Zealand. Also any equipment used on a farm (e.g. shoes) has to be thoroughly cleaned and will be checked on arrival. New Zealand does not have foot and mouth diseases so please don’t bring it with you.
