2 Week Honeymoon Itinerary - Sydney & New Zealand (South Island)

Jump to last reply

Ok everyone - I'm just starting to work on my Honeymoon planning and just wanted some thoughts. Quick background story. My brother use to live in Melbourne Australia and a few years ago I went visit for a few weeks. Out of that time we spent a few days in Sydney - so I've been there a little before but my fiance has never been. When my brother got married he went to NZ and did a very similar itinerary so he seems to think that its doable. I figured I would ask you guys (and gals) thoughts.

Day 1 - Arrive Sydney 8am
Day 1 - 3 - Explore Sydney
Day 4 - Depart SYD for Christchurch
Day 4 - 5 - Explore Christchurch
Day 6 (This is where the fun begins) - Pick up Campervan / RV and drive to Dunedin (4 1/2 hr drive)
Day 7 - Explore Dunedin
Day 8 - Drive to Te Anau (4 hr drive)
Day 9 - Drive to Milford Sound (1 1/2 hr drive)
Day 10 - Drive to Queenstown (3 1/2 hr drive)
Day 11 - Explore Queenstown
Day 12 - Drive to Manaka (1 hr drive)
Day 13 - Drive to Mt Cook National Park (3 hr drive)
Day 14 - Drive to Christchurch (4 1/2 hr drive)
Day 15 - Depart for US

Thoughts? It seems like a little bit of driving - but we wanted some adventure and freedom. Most places that have a longer drive to get to (Dunedin, Queenstown) we are staying for multiple days.

Thanks!!!
