My husband and I are doing a two week trip to australia and New Zealand in April 2014 over Easter, and are planning to be in NZ for 5.5 days (I know - way too short, but that's all we can do). We are flying into Queenstown and were thinking of flying up to Auckland where we fly out 5.5 days later. Our question is - how do we divide our time between Queenstown and Auckland? We live in San Francisco so are more interested in nature/adventure and are hoping to do a day trip to Milford sound while in Queenstown. We're thinking 3.5 days in Queenstown and 1.5 in Auckland or is there more in Auckland that we should see? What day trips are recommended from Queenstown?
Thanks so much for your help!!!
