Dec 25 Queenstown
Dec 26 Queenstown
Dec 27 Queenstown
Dec 28 Queenstown to Fox Glacier
Dec 29 Fox Glacier
Dec 30 Punanaiki
Dec 31 drive to a place between Nelson and Abel Taxman
Jan 1 Abel Tasman
Jan 2 area around Nelson - end at Queen Charlottes
Jan 3 Queen Charlotte
Jan 4 Queen Charlottes
Jan 5 Queen Charlotte - Kaikoura
Jan 6 Kaikoura Track
Jan 7 Kaikoura Track
Jan 8 finish Kaikoura Track either get back to Auckland to return home the next day or take a day to get in position to fly out on the 10th. We had planned to come home by Monday the 9th but I am not sure we will be able to get there. So we may take the 9th to get to Sydney or Auckland -- wherever we end up flying home from and go home the 10th.

So now I need ideas of where to stay. We prefer bed and breakfasts but will stay other places as well.

. In Queenstown I prefer to be in a location that is quieter -- should we consider Arrowtown? We would end up here for Christmas -- I am hoping that, with it being a fair sized town I would think we could find a place to eat.
