My boyfriend and I (we are 25 and) will be going to NZ anytime in July between 1-15. We will be flying into Auckland and flying out of Queenstown, staying in NZ for 10-11 days. We have decided we wanted to rent a campervan and travel down the North Island, hop on a plane in Wellington to Christchurch for a rugby game, there we will be renting a car to drive to Queenstown. Our budget is between 1500-2000 everything included.
Things that are set in stone:
- Hobbiton- I'm not too excited about staying in Auckland so we will probably move to Matamata as soon as we are off the plain
-Rugby game in Christchurch- on the 12th
-Bungy jumping in Queenstown
Things we need advice on:
-Where to go between Auckland and Wellington
-Where to go between christcurch and Queenstown
-Any must see LOTR scenery/attractions
-Anything that I can do to surprise him with? (he is a big LOTR fan)
Thank you so much in advance I really appreciate everyone's help!
