We are planning a trip in Mid march to NewZealand and first time for us.. Please let me know if this makes sense..

Day 1 – Reach Auckland fly to Nelson and drive to Abel Tasman (Rent a car)
Day 2 - Abel Tasman
Day 3 - Abel Tasman
Day 4 - Abel Tasman/Fox Glacier - Travel day and try to stop at places of interest during the drive
Day 5 - Fox Glacier
Day 6 - Fox Glacier/Queenstown - Travel day and try to stop at places of interest during the drive
Day 7 - Queenstown
Day 8 - Queenstown/TE ANAU (Spend most of the day in Queenstown and reach TE ANANU in the evening)
Day 9 - TE ANAU (Milford sound cruise and a hike if possible)
Day 10 - TE ANAU/Dunedin  (Travel to Dunedin right after breakfast)
Day 11 - Dunedin
Day 12 - Return the car and fly back from Dunedin- Auckland and back home

We would like to do Routeburn day walk and trying to see if i can fit this in as well? Please let me know your suggestions.. I am not sure when i will be back, so would like to do lot of treks to enjoy the nature..

Does it make anything better if i do this in reverse from Dunedin to Nelson?
