I need to plan a trip to book the air tickets for a visit in June 2014 and will appreciate your input a lot.
It will be my husbands introduction to NZ and I want him to experience the best there is to offer.
Have no idea what to expect weather wise. It seems that it is uncertain whether there are snow at that time of the year. I was hoping that, it being cold, the mountains will be covered with snow.
We are in our fifties. My husband's hobbies includes photography and fly fishing. Where will be the best place to go for fly fishing, north and south islands included?
I was thinking about flying to Queensland and spent a few days there with trips to Milford Sound,
Wanaka and Aoraki/ Mt Cook. Is the time of year fine to visit there? Maybe we could then drive to Christchurch and Blenheim visiting the wine farms and back as far as Wellington and fly back from there?
It seems that the weather on the North Island is wet and windy, that is why I am concentrating on the South Island. I did a trip in NZ in November and there was too much to experience and everything was green. It was amazing.This time around I do not have a clue how to make the most of the available approximate 10 days.
