Learn whether it is spring, summer, autumn, or winter in New Zealand – If you are wondering what season it is now in New Zealand, it is winter!
While I do tend to chuckle when I read such a question (please forgive me for doing that), it is a question that is currently being asked frequently, so you are not alone if you want to know what season it is now in New Zealand.
Let’s first start with the basics…
New Zealand goes through 4 seasons (summer, autumn, winter, and spring) just like any other country that lies in a temperate region on either the Northern or Southern hemisphere.
As explained in the best time to visit New Zealand, the seasons in New Zealand are the opposites of those on the Northern hemisphere.
So when it is winter in New York, it is summer in New Zealand. When it is autumn in New England, it is spring in New Zealand. When it is spring in London, it is autumn in New Zealand, and when it is summer in Banff Alberta, it is winter in New Zealand.
If we translate the seasons in New Zealand to months, we come up with:
- Summer in New Zealand: December, January, February
- Autumn in New Zealand: March, April, May
- Winter in New Zealand: June, July, August
- Spring in New Zealand: September, October, November
