New Zealand Sth Island

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to the Sth Island of New Zealand in March 2017. We will be flying into Queenstown on 24th Mar after an early flight from Melb. we will be based in Queenstown for 6days & have plans for this portion. From there we are driving to Dunedin for 2 days, then want to base ourselves in Blenheim for 4 nts, Kaikoura -2 nts; Christchurch - 3 nts. fly home from here. As this will be our 3rd visit to the Sth Is; I am thinking of flying from Dunedin to Blenheim. We have previously flown nto Christchurch & driven south to Queenstown via Twizel, Mt Cook etc. We then drove along the west coast up to Nelson, then Picton to take ferry to Nth Is. 2nd trip we skiied Mt Hutt & visited surrounding areas.
Query: 1. should we fly Dunedin to Blenheim or drive? If drive, what route should we take?
