Hello NZ experts! We will be doing a 14 night South Island drive very soon, flying in & out of Christchurch. Our advice has been to drive anti-clockwise, which we have decided to go with. Haven't got a really set itinerary (by choice...want to take time to stop along the way & to stay where we really like), but this is what we're thinking so far:
Open for discussion & suggestions!
2 nights (pre-booked) -Christchurch then head north, via Hanmer Springs (?).
? nights- Explore NE coast & Marlborough region(any suggestions on where to stay in the North?...we like wine & food)
? night -Dunedin (explore South East regions) What's the best route back to Christchurch please?
Depart Christchurch late afternoon, day 15
Things we might like to see, but not sure how to go about it in the time we have...
Looking forward to your (help) & suggestions :-)
