ln Feb/2011 we will be on the south lsland for 9 days, arriving by ferry at Picton and departing by plane from Christchurch.To best use my time l would like some input on routes to take. l would like to visit Milford sound so should l go route #1 from Picton to Nelson and down the west coast past Franz Josefe and onto Queenstown. From there on to Te Anau and MS before heading to Christchurch. #2 from Picton to Christchurch, then onto Dunedin. From there to Te Anau and MS, then Queenstown and eventually Christchurch. #3 Picton to Christchurch, onto Queentown, Te Anau and MS and back to Christchurch. l know l dont have enough time for everything and dont want to be driving non stop. Some ideas please on how to put my time to good use and also any recomendation on hotels/motels/B&B's would help. Thanks Steve.
