We are heading to the south island for a short break for about a week at the end of June. We are flying into Christchurch and then heading up to Blenheim for a couple of days. We were going to stop at Kaikora on the way, as we would like to spend a couple of days at Hanmer Springs.
Is Kaikora a good place to stop overnight in the middle of winter, or is there someone else we could should look at?
We will have about a week all up, and other than Hanmer Springs and the wineries I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions for other places around there that are nice in winter.
