Queenstown to Nelson Itinerary Question

Jump to last reply

We'll arrive in Queenstown (after more than 24 hours of travel from the U.S.) on the afternoon of Friday, October 17th. We have to be in Nelson Sunday, October 26th. The tentative plan is to rent a car in Queenstown and drive to Nelson. We'll have a total of (9) nights.

FYI, we've spent a lot of time in Queenstown (love it) and have been to Milford Sound. Here's what we're considering:

2 nts. Queenstown (to collapse & recover--and visit friends)
2 nights Wanaka (to continue to recover -- before doing significant driving)
2 nights Franz Josef
1 night Punakaiki
1 night Westport
1 night St. Arnaud

We're wondering if Punakaiki, Westport, and St. Arnaud warrant a night each. Any thoughts--or suggested revisions?

Thanks so much!!!
