June-July is cool (9-15° Celsius) and often rainy in Auckland, so pack your woollies and a raincoat. Even better, when you get here buy some of our fine merino wool clothing or our de-luxe speciality, possum-merino, from (among others) Kathmandu or Bivouac stores in Newmarket (not far from the conference venue).
