I have never been to NZ, but from what I've studied on the country's fishing I can give you some advice about line taper and color.

The trout in those crystal clear waters can be exceptionally spooky, so a delicate presentation line such as a double taper is probably best. For color, stay with muted tones and stay away from attention grabbing bright colors.

Welcome to the Forum, and please let us know how you do on your trip.
