New Zealand itineray include Coromandel and Nelson? Leave in 3 weeks!

Jump to last reply

21 days in New Zealand - some urgent help needed as we leave on Dec. 4th! We fly to Auckland from Canada and thinking of 2 nights at Coromandel (Hahei) or Tauranga. I don't see much on hte Coromodel peninisula and thinking it might not be worthwhile... But having just got off a long flight thought it might be nice to relax for 2 days... Is there a better spot to go and relax within a short (south) direction?
Also, an alternative itinerary would be to skip Nelson / Picton area and fly from Rotorua to Christchurch then drive thru Arthurs pass to Fox Glacier and continue on from there
Current itinerary:
1 night auckland or direct to beach area
2 nights Coromandel peninsula (Hahei) or Tauarange
3 nights Roturo (get there in evening so 2 full days)
Fly to Wellington (1 night)
Ferry to Picton
Picton/Nelson area (3 days/4 nights)
Drive to Hotika (1 night)
Fox Glacier (2 nights)
Wanaka (2 nights)
Queenston (3 nights)
Te Anua (2 nights)
Arrowtown (1 night) for Flight to Melbourne the next day
Comments and suggestions greatly appreicated!! Trying to have a relaxing trip and worrying I am packing too much in... Have 21 days in Australia after this so cant wear ourselves out!
