Carry NZD that is what is accepted and used in NZ. Weather could be lovely and sunny, or we could have early snow and chilly. So at that time of the yeaf, hope for nice weather but be prepared for any conditioms. It is autumn. Layers of clothing are recommended.

ATMs are generally the safest & easiest way to obtain NZ $. No point making a second exchange to USD. Check with your bank whether there is one preferred NZ bank to use, and what fees are charged

BNZ has rates for it so I guess you can change rupees to kiwi. I can't tell you how easy b'cos I haven't done it myself. Btw, banks here charge commission etc.
