South Island Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Am helping my sister plan a visit to the South Island, she will be travelling with her son and daughter, 23 and 20. Their schedule is as follows:

Apr 23-26: Mother and daughter arrive CHCH from Wellington, rent car and drive to Akaroa, visit/explore the Banks peninsula
Apr 26 am: pick up son at CHCH airport, drive to Mt Cook, stay 2 nights at village
Apr 27: Mt Cook area hike
Apr 28: drive to Te Anau, stay 3 nights. Day trip to Milford Sound one day, glow worm caves and hikes.
May 1: drive to Queenstown, stay night
May 2: pm flight back to Wellington

My main concern is the drive from Mt Cook to Te Anau on Apr 28, would it be better to stay that night at Queenstown and then go to Te Anau for 3 nights? Then drive back to QT on May 2 in time to drop off the rental car and take the late afternoon flight to Wellington.

This is my first time on the Kiwi forum, hence my apologies if I sound an ingoramus! Please feel free to comment/critique my itinerary, thanks in advance for your suggestions:)
