I have a friend coming to visit from the UK, he arrives at Chch (where I live) on the 26th and departs on the 11th of jan.
I want to spend New years in Queenstown. Other must do's is whale watching tour in kakoura, hamner springs, Mt cook, Milford sounds, Dunedin (see penguins and albatrosses), banks Peninsula. He also like sea fishing, im not a fisherman so wouldn't know where to go for that and there's a glow worm cave i heard good things about.
Any recommendation welcome and appreciate, interested in wild life eating/drinking, adventure but not too much hiking/walking.
