South Island Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Part of our 3 week NZ & Australia trip will include a self drive in rental car from Queenstown to Christchurch on Oct. 31 - Nov. 7. My husband and I enjoy day hikes (2 - 3 hour types), scenery, 4 - 5 star accommodations, fine wine and food. We have already viewed some lodging options and day trips but are looking for more insight on destinations along the way and comments on this itinerary draft. Many thanks in advance. If anyone needs similar help for a Northern CA trip, just let us know:
Oct. 31 - pick up car in QT, drive through Arrowtown and arrive Wanaka (2 nights Wanaka). Lodging recommendations?
Nov. 2 - drive to Fox/Franz Joseph - probably 2 nights here. Lodging recommendations?
Nov. 5, 6, 7 - Will drive to and stay in either Waipara area or Kaikoura. Possible stay in Hokitika before venturing to the East coast.
