It will also depend on the type of trip you are planning to have with how many people. The minimum necessary to be reasonably comfortable is around NZ$1600 per month. Families with children will need over NZ$ 2500 per month. For students NZ$1000 per month only for the ones with a very low budget. For those who are only going for tourism, you should set a side around NZ$ 60 to 100 per day, for accommodation such as a backpackers, food and one attraction. For the tourist with a little more money you will probably be spending around NZ$ 150 plus per day. It all depends on you and how much you want to spend as well as the time of the year.
