Oh, it's not really going to be two days, but it will be two days AFTER we see Te Anau and Milford. So we'll have two days from accommodation in Milford Sound to get ourselves to ZQN for the 11am flight on day three.
We'll have overnighted in Te Anau once and will do whatever we missed as we backtrack en route to the Caitlins.
Where should we plan to overnight on nights 1 and 2 if we want to keep moving in the right direction?
For night 2 is there any town maybe within an hour's drive coming from the direction of The Caitlins?
It looks like it's 3 hours and change from The Caitlins (I put in the name of the waterfall) back to ZQN on either of two inland routes. Which one is recommended?
Also, for night 1, I was considering Invercargill for services and a comfy unrushed stop, but is it too close, should we press on to Curio Bay?
We're more concerned with the sightseeing aspects and logistics than with the perfect lodging experience.
We're starting off in a few days and ending there late January.
