Hi, i will bore you with my plans, any tips please let us know.
We will be collecting our motorhome in Auckland on 25th August and staying close to relatives for the first 3 days and then heading South. We plan 1 night in Rotorua,
on to Napier for 1 night then the ferry
1 night in Blenheim
2 nights in Kaikoura and do whale watching.
on to Christchurch for one night and then
Dunedin for 1 night at relatives.
Over to Queenstown for 2 nights - not sure whether to go via Gore or Invercargill. We plan to bungee and shotover jet boat here.
Up to Franz Josef for 2 nights and do a Helihike,
on to either Greymouth or Westport for 1 night- see how we feel then 1 night in Nelson.
Back on ferry to Wellington for 1 night then
1 night in Wangunui and drive via New Plymouth to
Waitomo for 1 night - heres the question, which glowworm cave trip to do - 1 thats 45min long or spellbounds thats 3.5hr long?
We will then head back to Auckland and visit the relatives for 5 days and do day trips, maybe head up towards Bay of Plenty for a night.
Thing is will we need to book the camp grounds before hand, how bad will the roads be in South Island with snow? We know that some activities will need booked before and we also know that we plan a lot of driving in not a lot of days but we want to see as much as we can, there will be 2 drivers and the kids are 11 & 14 so should cope with it.
So are we crazy or can it be done??
