Austraila & NZ

Jump to last reply

Just starting to plan an October 2015 trip but need the logistics of where to fly into and out of . Have 4 weeks to do both countries. We want to visit the Port Douglas area, Sydney and Melbourne in Australia. In NZ we would like to do a driving loop in the southern part of NZ that encompasses churchchrist, Te Anau, Franz Josef and Queenstown.

Is it more cost and time efficient to fly into one of the larger cities like Sydney and then take Virgin Australia/Jetstar to the other places and then fly out of Sydney or maybe even New Zealand. Or is it feasible to rent a car and drive down/up in Australia??

Again, just in the planning stages and need to figure out the travel logistics for a smooth trip without backtracking too much.
