Good afternoon all!
Well at the end of September my self and my wife to be are getting married. We have decided that a New Zealand holiday would be perfect for us to celebrate, In particular the South Island. A bit of help is needed though to help us plan our perfect getaway.
We are looking to fly into Queenstown, and spend 7 or 8 nights in Queenstown, hopefully catching the tail end of the ski season and having a few days in the slopes mixed with all the activities that Queenstown has to offer. (we are thinking of staying at the Hilton). We then have another 7 days to travel at our leasure. We were wondering what sort of itinerary you suggest to hire a car for the week and explore the rest of the south island.
We will be flying back home to perth from Queenstown so we need to finish back in Queenstown. I think we will see Milford Sound from Queenstown (fly, cruise, fly) so we won't need to see it again by car (i also heard the drive can be dangerous).
Any advice is definately more than welcome. Also would it be to cold to hire a campervan being it september / October or she we hire a subaru and stay in accomodation along the way.
Thanks in advance!
