I use 26x1.5 slick tyres and this will handle most gravel roads, unless they have just been graded (then no tyre will do the job well). If you go well offroad, you may benefit with knobbly tyres eg Molesworth, Rainbow Rd.
You might want to consider taking the fenders off if they cause a problem. Most bikes in NZ don't have fenders. We put up with a little dirt and water, or put cut down versions of fenders on the bike eg on the downtube.
