NZ South Island Loop - does direction matter?

Jump to last reply

Hello - I'm planning a trip to the South Island of New Zealand for the Fall. I plan to start in Christchurch and end there about 2 weeks later. My question is: does it matter which way I do the loop? My plan was to go: Christchurch to Grey Mouth to Franz Josef/Fox to Wanaka to Queenstown to Te Anau/Milford Sound to Dunedin to Christchurch.

Or, would the reverse be a better plan (i.e., head to Dunedin after my first night in Christchurch)?

Thanks for your thoughts on this!
