NZ then a "quickie" to AUS and GBR

Jump to last reply

Just wondering what anyone would think of this plan...

Fly (home to) LAX to Auckland, Auckland to Christchurch.

10-day auto tour of south island (Christchurch to Christchurch)

Fly Christchurch to Cairns

1-day tour of GBR

Fly Cairns to Sydney--->1 or 2 days?

Fly Syd to LAX (then home)

Is there a smarter way to do this? Should I start in Aus then go to NZ? This is likely my only chance to be in this part of the world so I need to see the GBR or I will regret it, even though it is a tight squeeze.
In case I get a lot of people worried that this is too much, I am not vacationing to relax, I am vacationing to see the world. I'll relax on my comfy couch at home. :)
