For our 5+ week trip to Australia and NZ (mid October to late November) I've been getting to specific planning in stages. Would love to get feedback if I am doing something that won't work here. I've selected these spots because of our interests, even though it might not be the typical first trip
1)From Arthur's Pass, drive to Kaikoura (4 hours). Albatross Encounter early next morning.
2) drive to Blenheim, stay 2 nights for winery tours
3) ferry to Wellington at 9am. Drive about 3 hours (Rangitikei district maybe.) to spend night. We don't want to drive the entire way and want to limit how much we deviate from the most efficient route.
4) drive to Rotorua, 3 nights there
5) fly back to US, 5pm flight from Auckland

Thanks, this has been fun planning and I know the trip will be great!
