Queenstown/Otango for 72 hours

Jump to last reply

Hello, we arrive in Queenstown (South Island) on a Wed afternoon in early March, and fly out on Saturday afternoon. We have a car reserved.

We're interested in bucket list scenery and being active, so hiking, jet boating, or cruising Milford sound are all thoughts, but here are some questions.

Any suggestions on "must see/must do" in this area of New Zealand? Milford Sound? We could also drive up to the glaciers one day but is that any better scenery than what is fijord ladn park and surrounding area?

Is it possible to drive a rental car all the way to Milford sound and then do a cruise? I would think so, but all the posts/guidebooks mention being on a charter bus which is not something I'd like to do.

Where are some great day hikes?

Assuming one can drive to the Sound and the best day hikes are in fijord land park, would staying in Te Anu be a better option than staying in Queenstown?

Has anyone done the combo flight/cruise out of Queenstown? If that's recommended, then we could stay in Q-town and maybe explore in a different direction other than Te Anu?

In general, just looking for others thoughts on how to make the most of our 72 hours!

Thanks,

Chris
