we are spending 5 nights in Queenstown and surrounds over New year/Early Jan. Flights from QT to Brisbane are incredibly expensive the day of our departure and one alternative is to fy from QT to Christchurch and spend the night there before flying home. Its a saving of about $500 if we do it.
Im reading the forums etc and getting mixed thoughts on the value of coming to Christchurch for less than 24 hrs, given the situation with the city centre and half day tours etc Im unsure of the best place to stay also. We enjoy outdoor exercise, good food, wineries and nature based stuff.
Can anyone give me their thoughts on this idea and are we really just better to stay in QT and pay up :)
