We will be driving on the 24 of June from Mt Cook to Christchurch.
Not sure if SH1 or SH72 is the better choice with regards to scenery as well as driving time.
According to AA timetable the driving time is 4.38, that should be for SH2. What is the apprx driving time via SH72?
Also, that day will be our only time in CC as we will be flying out the next morning, though there might not be enough time for a sightseeing or other activity anyway?
Your advice in this matter will be appreciated.
