Hi
Landing Late September/early October in Queenstown (after 3 weeks in OZ - so jet-lag no problem) and proposing to fly home to UK from Christchurch. 60+ year old couple unable to walk too far and hiking certainly out.
These days we love self driving through awesome scenery. Spotting wildlife would be a BIG extra, (and live music just the icing on the cake).

On the itinerary is:
Queenstown (including Glenorchy)
Milford Sound
Wanaka
Franz Joseph Glacier
Tekapo
Mount Cook
Christchurch (perhaps 2 full days ? - looks very interesting - if needs be could make it 9 days)
Whalewatch (Kaikoura?)

What are the 'must dos' we've omitted?
Can it be done in the time suggested?
What route would you take on this self-dive?
Cheers
