New Zealand advice

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will have a week for vacation mid-September after my conference in Brisbane. We were thinking of going for a week to New Zealand, after lots of reading thinking of spending 3 days in the Abel Tasman Ntl Park area on the North Island, then to Auckland and visiting the city and some day trips for another 3 days before back to overnight in Sydney to catch our early flight.

We know this will still be early spring and a bit chilly in NZ plus we burn some time flying, so I thought an alternative would be ~3 days on Fraser Island, then maybe Hunter Valley or some other destination in NSW, we have been to Cairns/GBR and Sydney before so wouldn't put that as a major goal.

Any thoughts on this? I know it is very subjective but that is what travel is about! Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
