I have had a lot of suggestions regarding my route.. and have modified it several times.. this is my latest and wonder if it is realistic..we really want to hit these sights so hopefully it works
so here is how it stands now .
1.Fly into Christ Church (late afternoon explore)
2 Day 2 in Christ Church -day trip to Banks Penns. and explore
3 Tranzalpine train to Greymouth then drive to Franz J.
4. Franz and Fox
5. Franz and Fox (helihike)
6. Drive in AM to Wanaka
7. Wanka-- hikes in Mt Aspiring
8. Drive in AM Wanka to Mt Cook
9. Mt Cook
10. Drive AM to Te Anau (4hrs?)
11. Te Anau-- Milford Sound
12. Drive in AM to Queenstown
15. Flight to Sydney
We figure if the weather is bad when in te Anau and we are unable to do Milford the days we are there that we can always do it from QUeenstown although farther.. this is one tour we will be doing instead of driving.
I have not planned out all the suggested side trips just yet but just the basics.. my H reallly does not want to be driving long distances every day so this breaks it up so there are at least two days in each place?
Any thoughts welcome thanks
