Trip Getting Closer-a Few Practical Questions

Jump to last reply

We completed the key components in our trip planning ( flight, itinerary within countries, hotels, etc). last fall but now our departure date is less than one month away. (Thanks to Fodorites, especially Melnq8, for great help!) We're off to Sydney, Cairns, South Island, NZ and Fiji on February 8. As excitement begins to build about our trip, we're dealing with issues such as packing as lightly as possible, what types of clothes to take, etc.

Some questions with which we'd appreciate help:
-What type of clothing is practical for February? Is the southern portion of the South Island cooler? Light sweaters/jackets sufficient?
-Outside of the Opera House in Sydney, are we right to think that "casual clothing" will be appropriate in the other areas?
-How handy are laundry facilites in South Island, NZ?
-Are we correct in assuming that there are ample stores on the South Island, NZ where we can re-supply toiletries if needed?
-Since many lodging facilites don't seem to include breakfast, how easy is it to find local bakeries, restaurants, etc. (We don't like to cook if we can avoid it!)

We'd really appreciate responses to the above questions, as well as any other suggestions of helpful things to have along on our trip.

Thanks, in advance!
