Hi, we are travelling to NZ early January. 2 adults and three sons ranging in age from 13-21 years. We will be arriving in Picton around lunch time on the inter island ferry and leaving early morning Christchurch 5 days later. We will have a car.
I love wine, culture and scenery, my hubby likes fishing, the kids love adventure and chocolate.
Budget isn't extensive but also not on a shoestring.
Should we stay on the eastern side or will we have time to go across the western as well if we don't go below Christchurch/ Greymouth?
Thanks for any advice
