Hi, we will be in Dunedin in March. We have a day to travel up to Te Anau from Dunedin and I'd welcome opinion and thought on whether it is worth the long day driving the scenic route via Invercargill, or drive the more direct route via Gore?
We will have a baby with us (6 months old) and the next day we need to leave early to get an early cruise at Milford Sound.
My thinking is that as much as we'd love to do the scenic route, its probably not viable / sensible.
If that is the case, perhaps you could also advise on whether the direct route has any good places to stop / scenery worth checking out / places to eat / feed baby?
