Welcome to TA. This is an unusual itinerary as you seem to have missed most of the scenic highlights of the SI!! Why 2 N in Oamaru & 1N in Invercargill? Why not visit Mt Cook instead of 2 N at Lake Tekapo? What about Te Anau/ Milford Sound?

hi thanks for your reply.

I thought i have covered most of the scenic highlight..hahaha

2N in lake Tekapo meant to be 1day at Tekapo and 1 day trip to Mt cook and Mt john.

I heard Oamaru is a nice place thus I planned 2 nights.And I am travelling wioth baby I want to go a little slow pace.

Invercargill isnt a place worth of a night stay? I am thinking how to include Milford sound.

Can you suggest me how should I plan my itinerary?
