New Zealand Honeymoon in July

My fiance and I will be going to Moorea and New Zealand for our honeymoon late June/early July. We already have our itinerary set for Moorea...relax/drink/read/honeymoon stuff ò?~...
but we have no idea what to do / where to go in New Zealand. We're not afraid of cold weather (we'll have just spent a week on the beach AND we're from Canada) and really just want to see some sites.
We're flying into Auckland and we're only in NZ for 8 days but we'd really like to go to the South Island because it sounds more scenic for winter travel.

We're thinking of staying one night in Auckland and then flying to somewhere on the SI. Any ideas of where to fly and what to see (we'll rent a car) in only 7 days? Also, I imagine we should be fine to go without booking rooms during that time...sound right?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I'd fly into Queenstown, which is centrally-located between the coastal glaciers, Fiordland, and the Southern Alps. If (and its a BIG IF) the weather is decent, you can see Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, take a tour of Milford and/or Doubtful Sounds, and check out the Mt. Cook region. If you want outdoor activities, skiing, rafting, jet-boating, bungy-jumping, etc. are all close to Queenstown.
