How to give travel tips for New Zealand (Auckland)

Hi all,
New Zealand is a very well known holiday destination, but for many people and especially my friends in Europe, very difficult to reach. So if somebody plans a holiday here they have big expectations and they often ask me for advice, which I am happy to give. Sometimes with success sometimes not so good: like when I couldn't get across that New Zealand can be quite cold in summer and the visitors came with sleeveless only. Or, traveling New Zealand without renting a car doesn't seem to work well. Pointing out that sun-protection is important here makes me feel like a health-Nazi but then again there were cases with really, really bad sunburns on children's skin.
What are your experiences with giving travel advice for New Zealand?
Cheers

PS: Hope to see you all at our next meeting which should be soon.
