I would suggest (if you are feeling adventurous) trying your hand at mountain climbing. Perhaps start off by climbing Ngaruahoe, then move on to the big guns like Ruapehu, and/or Taranaki.

The South island is "where its at"! :-)

Mt Cook is down there of course!

Queenstown is the place to do "stuff" from too - jet boating, white water rafting, bungy jumping (this is where it was invented), etc etc.

You'll love it though wherever you go. I'm moving over myself in March with my husband (a kiwi) - we miss it too much

Fiordland is absolutely beautiful. You might want to consider a walk or tramp near Milford, Doubtful or Dusky Sound. There is nowhere else like it- I was only there for two days and I've sworn I'll be back.

Dunedin is a lovely place, not too small and not too large, and as it has a major student population I imagine temporary work would be easy to find.

Have a great time :) I'm sure you will.
