Hi all Ozbargainers!
Long story short I am just back from a cruise trip which travels across New Zealand and then back to Aus. I found it really surprise that New Zealand goods and products are really expensive! For example a mobile sim pre paid plan $20 will get you only 2GB of data for the month. Also I went to Countdown (an equivalent to Woolworths in Aus) and found a rack of 12-eggs case on special for $7.50 each! The price of other products such as beef, veggies, fruits are also much more expensive compared to Australia. And while I was there the currency exchange between AUD and NZD is roughly the same.
Does anyone live in NZ or has been there share some thoughts on this? I'm not complaining or anything I'm just curious that's all.
