26 Day Road trip

Hi, we are two couples early 50's embarking on a 26 day road trip through the South & North islands in Nov. Any advise,Places of interest,etc. would be greatly appreciated. Here is what I have come up with so far.
We will have 4 drivers & we aren't interested in wineries or hicking. More looking for scenery,Viewing Wildlife, etc.

Day 1. Fly in to Christchurch.
Day 2. Pick up Motorhome. Drive straight to Hamner Springs.
Day 3. Go to Kaikoura.
Day 4. Sightseeing at Christchurch/Lyttelton
Day 5. Drive to Akaroa. Then stay overnight at Geraldine.
Day 6. Drive around Lake Tekapo/Mt Cook. Stay at Mt Cook
Day 7. Drive via Oamaru to Dunedin.
Day 8. Go to Portobello and surrounds. Then onto Owaka.(Caitlins)
Day 9. From Owaka to Invercargill. (which direction is best.???) Then continuing onto Te Anau.
Day 10. Milford Sound cruise. Back to Te Anau or Queenstown. Time permitting.
Day 11. Explore Queenstown.
Day 12. Arrowtown-Cromwell -Wanaka.
Day 13. Drive to Franz Josef. Helicopter flight. Any preferences,best flight for money???
Day 14. Onto Murchison.
Day 15. Drive to Picton, ready for early ferry.
Day 16. Ferry and explore Wellington. Stay at Palmerston North or Masterton. Which way.??
Day 17. Onto Napier
Day 18. Taupo - Rotorua
Day 19. Stay at Rotorua. Moari culture etc.
Day 20. Head up around Coromandel staying at Miranda. Is it worth going all the way around???
Day 21. From Miranda to Paihia/Bay of Islands.
Day 22. Cruise the Bay of islands/Russell.
Day 23. Maybe day trip to Cape Rainga.
Day 24. Relax
Day 25. Head down west coast to Auckland.
