11 nights including 2 at Dunedin

Good day, we are a group of 5 with 2 middle-aged folks and wish to seek your advice for an itinerary that includes a visit to hot springs plus 2 nights at Dunedin to visit an old friend.

We wish to keep a mid-low budget with driving and can start our travel from either ChristChurch, Wellington or Auckland (preferred), whichever is more scenic and easier for driving.

Please for your inputs thanks!

With only 11 days, you are best starting in Christchurch and focusing on the South Island. Some of the itinerary experts will be along shortly with a suggested route.

Hi EK :)

NZ is considerably larger than it appears on the world map and trying to drive Auckland to Dunedin in 11 days won't show you much more than the inside of your car.

1 arrive Auckland

2 drive to Rotorua

3 explore

4 drive to Taupo

5 drive to Wellington

6 ferry to Picton, drive to Kaikoura

7 drive to Hanmer Springs - hot pools

8 drive to Chch

9 drive to Dunedin - long tedious drive

10 visit

11 fly out

far more scenic and far easier driving to;

1 arrive Christchurch

2 drive to Tekapo - hot pools tekaposprings.co.nz/tekapo-springs-hot-pools

3 drive to Aoraki/Mt Cook - glorious drive

4 drive to Wanaka - another glorious drive

5 drive to Queenstown

6 explore

7 bus to Milford Sound, cruise, bus or scenic flight back to Queenstown

8 drive to Dunedin

9/10 visit

11 fly out

hope this helps :)
