as I´ve read a couple of times on this forum?!
Husband and I are doing a two-week, anticlockwise circle, before Christmas, starting in Christchurch.
We don´t want to spend to much time in the car so the plan is something like this:
Akaroa - 2 nights (this is preebooked and we need that after a long flight)
Lake Tekapo - 1
Queenstown - 3
Te Anau - 2
Invercargill ? - 1 (via The Southern Scenic Route)
Dunedin - 2
Oamaru ? - 1
Timaru ? - 1
? - 1 (last night relatively close to the airport since we fly out early afternoon)
So now I´m not so sure about staying in Invercargill… Any other recommendations?
After Dunedin, is Oamaru – Timaru – the best way to go back to Christchurch? (I have difficulty finding nice accomodation on this stretch – recommendations for breakfastoholics would be appreciated!)
Also - is there any place that is particularly good for sunset horse rides on the beach on this stretch?
And where can we buy Blundstone´s – or similar NZ brand?
Thank you all!
