Hi! My friends and I will be making it to South Island in this October! While we are here, we're just mainly for picture taking of the many scenery and nothing much of everything else. We;re planning to rent a car to drive around.
Day 1 - Fly to Dunedin. Half day tour of the city.
Day 2 - Drive to Te Anau and spend night there. Someone suggested using the southern scenic route or something.
Day 3 - Milford Sound tour. Spend night in Queenstown.
Day 4 - Full day tour of Queenstown.
Day 5 - Drive to Christchurch.
Day 6 - Fly home.
