We are a group o four adults i.e two couples traveling to Australia & NZ for 18 nights (excluding flights flight from and back to India) We initially thought of doing only nz for the entire duration but then thought hat too much scenic and historic sights might get little boring as one of the couples will be on there honeymoon and decided to do a combination of Australia and new Zealand in order to balance nightlife, scenic, adventure and luxury.
Now our Itinerary Goes like this, Kindly Suggest possible changes so that we can proceed with hotel bookings and apply for visas accordingly.
Day1-4 – Brisbane/Gold coast
Day4-6 Hamilton Island
Day 7-9 Sydney
Day10-13 Queenstown (will cover nearby areas from here like mild ford sound etc)
Day14- Franz Josef
Day 15 Christchurch
Now we are left with 3 days in hands which can either be added to Australia as per suggestions or New Zealand or a combination of both..(someone suggested us to take a stopover at singapore for 3 days while coming back but we feel it can be done anytime as it is close to our home country)
Hotels Required will be four star and above, also we are looking forward for some experiences that can be cherished for rest of our lives.
Pl. Note we are not too much in to long hikes, too much history or hardcore physical exertion but would definitely like to experience even all of these at moderate levels if possible
Kindly Suggest a Suitable Itinerary
