    Hey Spider! I am originally from Tauranga which I think is the best little place, it's a cross between a retirement and surf village (80,000 Population, one of the fastest growing cities in NZ). Over summer it's gets pretty crazy with so many people but's there's not a lot to do really after that.
    Just moved to Wellington our Capital and am enjoying it so far. Plenty of Sport and things to do plus it has a good atmosphere.
    You Aussies should pop over some time. :)

    Ahh Dunedin. The riviera of the south.

    Less annual rain-fall than just about anywhere in the north.

    Art, Speights, theatre, Speights, academia, culture, have mentioned Speights?

    No snow to speak of for the last two winters.
    Yep it does get cold but GET HARD!!

    Born and bred and wouldn't live anywhere else apart from Tauranga (if I had to).

    Yeah, I gotta agree, GO Dunedin! Go
    Highlanders! (only cos the Crusaders dont have a chance) Go Speights! I had a keg of CD
    at my 21st, and when it ran out we had to switch to Speights and everone cheered! it must be taking over....

    I supported the highlanders for a couple of years (Only because I'm not a Waikato fan) but they failed me twice so I switched to the Hurricanes but i'm getting the same response. Stuffed if i'm going for the Crusaders or Auckland. I'm just stuck between a rock and hard place.
