I am planning a vacation to New Zealand and Australia in July. I have never been to either, and getting to both is a trek (I'm from New York). I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could help answer. Many thanks in advance for your help.
1) I am flying into Auckland and, following some time on the North Island, will make my way down to the South Island to fly out of Christchurch to Melbourne/Sydney. Acknowledging that I won't have time to see/do everything, can I still have a good, not-too-rushed time in 6 days, 7 days, 8 days, 9 days, or 10 days? If so, how many days would you recommend?
2) If I want to see Melbourne and Sydney while in Australia, can I do both in 6 days, 7 days, or 8 days?
3) If I want to see Tasmania, how many extra days should I add on? Relatedly, will it be too cold in Tasmania in July?
Thanks again so much for your help!
