We will be visiting over Christmas break 2and into the new year 2010. 3 weeks total. We will have 2 teenage boys with my husband and myself and want to tramp the Milford Track. Here are my questions:
1) Best place to be for Christmas? Christchurch, Wellington....? We want the experience of NZ without fighting crowds.
2) Why is there a higher age limit on zip lines than bungie jumps. We aren't sure about letting our boys do either and I would like to know more about the safety of each.
3) With only a couple of weeks, what are the best areas to drive and which areas to fly?
4) Are there any trains which go North/South for communters?
