1.Arrive Auckland early AM and fly to Lake Taupo-car rental
2-3 Lake Taupo and Tongariro Nat'l Park
4. Fly Lake Taupo or Rotorua to Nelson-car rental
4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Nelson, Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park, maybe Takaka. Plan to say one place and prefer beach hotel. any recommendations?

9 Fly Nelson to Greymouth or Nelson to CC for oneway Transzalpine train trip--?? Is this worth the effort and which direct is best?
10 ,11, return to CC and on to Rangiora for farm stay-car rental
12, 13, 14 Fly CC to Queenstown and on to Te Anau. Car rental. We plan to stay in Te Anau-recommendations? Milford sound cruise? flight see? Steam ship cruise TSS Earnslaw on Lake Wakatipu
