My boyfriend and i are going on a working holiday to NZ in august and i was wondering if anyone had any advice about what sort of luggage is best to take. Is a suitcase going to be practical or is a backpack better? We are planning to travel while we are there but also would like to settle in some places for longer so maybe a backpack wouldnt be necessary? We also plan to get a car while we are there. Also, how do you decide what sort of clothing to take? As we may be there for a whole year is it best to just take a little bit of everything and buy stuff when there?

Bring whatever you are comfy with. If you have a car you can just throw whatever you have into it.
As far as clothes go, it will depend what work you are doing and where you will be living/staying. If you are working on the ski slopes or going to be in the deep south for winter you'll need cold weather gear, otherwise a rain jacket and "normal" clothes will be fine. It never gets really hot here.
