Help for 6 days based in Queenstown

Jump to last reply

All kinds of great advice here - I'll try to be specific
Have 6 nights, flying in and out of Queenstown (Canadians) in mid September.
We'll be renting a car. Is it a better idea to drive to Milford Sound, or take a bus tour? Thinking about a few nights in Te Anau; is that a better starting point for Milford Sound? Definitely want to do the boat on the fjord. And Franz Josef - is that a day trip or is it recommended to stay overnight? Also want to see the wineries. Are they all close enough for day trips out of Queenstown, or are they destinations themselves? Main interests are seeing the glaciers and scenery, wildlife and wine/great dining. Thanks
