Australia went through a big sun protection promotion a few years ago, and New Zealand is no different. With the second highest rate of skin cancer in the world, it’s vital that you stay protected from the sun during your stay in New Zealand.
The sun is intense in New Zealand, and even on an apparent cloudy day you can burn in under 30 minutes.
Remember to SLIP on a shirt, SLOP on some sunscreen and SLAP on a hat! After all you probably came her to experience the great outdoors the country is renowned for, so don’t let it ruin your experience. Tramping with a backpack on sunburnt shoulders? Euurrrgh!
