We have read all the threads here about travel to New Zealand, and have used them to create an itinerary for our trip in August. Thanks for all the info!
We're not sure if we've got it right though - can you have a look and give us any advice on how we can alter it to make it better? We only have 14 nights and want to get as much in as possible while actually getting a 'holiday'. We were wondering whether to take 1 night out of North Island and tag it on in Auckland at end?
Any advice on accomodation while we're there would be great too!
