Hi, we are a family with young kids ages 5 and 8 with not a lot of time on our once-in-a-lifetime trip to NZ planned for this December. Is Milford Sound a 'must see'? For us, it would mean:
- drive from Queenstown in afternoon to Te Anua which looks about 5 hours, overnight in Te Anua,
- 1 day tour to Milford Sound (my husband is not keen to drive himself) - overnight again in Te Anua
- drive to Dunedin for 2 days en route north.
I'm worried that all the extra driving might drive our kids stir-crazy or is it a "must" to see the fijords? Perhaps we should stay an extra day or two around Queenstown?
