Jump to last reply

Hello, everyone. We are active seniors going to New Zealand and Sydney in November. We'll have 29 nights there which we've divided into 24 in New Zealand and 5 in Sydney. We're flying into Auckland from the US then taking a short flight to Rotorua, since we found a good airfare on grabaseat.co.nz. We decided to not visit Auckland and Christchurch so we can spend more time in the rural areas. We're not into hiking much but love beautiful scenery, wildlife, museums, history, etc. So...........we'd love your suggestions and tweaking of how we're dividing up our time. So far, we have 21 of the 24 nights for New Zealand. Also would welcome suggestions for B&B's or motel/hotels, preferably not over $175NZ per night.
Here goes:
Rotorua - 3 nights
Napier - 2 nights
Wellington - 3 nights
Nelson - 2 nights
Wesport or Punakaiki - 2 nights
Franz Joseph - 2 nights
Wanaka - 2 nights
Te Anau - 2 nights
Queenstown or Arrowtown - 3 nights (Is Arrowtown a good base? We prefer to stay in smaller towns).
Flying from Queenstown to Sydney for 5 nights, then home.
Thanks for any help.
