Victoria and south

Jump to last reply

We have narrowed our trip down to spend 10 days in southern Australia now that we were scared away by potentially bad weather in the north. We will be there in Jan (2014) for the Tennis Open (3 days) we would take perhaps 2 days to explore Melbourne (?) then possibly ocean road (how many days do we need for that?) also see the penguins (stewart island)
other recommendations? Do we have enough time to do that area justice?

We thought 2 weeks on South Island of New Zealand..although we are really struggling here on what to focus on as we have a long list we will have to cut down..if we want to be realistic.. I would love to see some of the norther part of south island in particular Able Tasman.. not sure how many days to spend there min to give it justice.. then down the east coast to Christchurch (train ride down from Nelson or bus) then there a few days? then across by bus to Greysomething want to see josef glazier then down to te anau for a few days Milford and Doubtful sounds then Queenstown for a few days to explore Fiordland and that area.. I am hoping that is not too much
Open to suggestions.. we are really more nature than city people so not looking for the nightlife and shopping.. just natural beauty and places where we can get some great photos... THanks!
