Optimum time to visit both New Zealand and Australia

Jump to last reply

I am planning to travel to both Australia and New Zealand. Originally I was going in March but had to cancel the trip .Now my next opportunity is the end of October beginning of November. Is this a good time weatherwise to go to New Zealand and Australia? I've read mixed reports and I'm concerned about making a good decision.
I am concerned about rain, excessive humidity,and bugs in Australia and serious cold and rainy weather around Milford sound in New Zealand.
Would October and November work or should I put it off another year and go in March . what do you think???
I appreciate you help!

My itinerary includes Melbourne,AliceSpring,Cairns,Sydney,Queens Town and Aukland.
