7 nights NEW ZEALAND - South Island

Jump to last reply

Hi Friends,

I am planning a week long holiday to South Island, New Zealand.

We are coming from India and would rather visit NZ via Melbourne/Sydney either ways.

I have made a sample itinerary which is as follows

Day 1 - Arrive CHC and stay overnight
Day 2 - Take Transalpine to Greymouth and stay overnight
Day 3 - Drive to Wanaka and stay overnight
Day 4 - Drive to Queenstown and stay for 4 nights
Day 5 - Milford Sound & Te Anau
Day 6 - At Leisure / Sky line
Day 7 - At Leisure
Day 8 - Depart from QST to Sydney

I would ideally want to drive a maximum of 3.5 hours everyday....

Can someone recommend a better itinerary or revisions?
I am missing Mt. Cook?
Is my itinerary doable?
Is te anau and milford doubale in 1 day without being too hectic?

Thanks
Akshay
