It is hard to say what flights will be operating in 2014. I think I read recently that AirNZ were starting direct flights between Perth & CHC for a trial period next summer but those may not operate in winter. If you want to use QF points you are probably limited to Perth-MEL-ZQN or Perth-MEL-CHC-ZQN. Do be aware that Trans-Tasman flights are often operated by Jetstar.

Hi,

If you are visiting for the skiing you would do well to wait until August. The early season, most areas open late june, is problematic and may only have machine made snow.

This link will show you what I mean.

And if you come in August, you will avoid NZ school holidays (which are in July).

I'm doing the same sort of thing in a couple of months :) But I have found AirNZ to be the best. They do a direct flight to Auckland from Perth. I am going on to start my trip in Christchurch and AirNZ have a transfer desk/check in at the international terminal in Auckland to take my luggage to domestic (so no need to lug it around) and even better a domestic flight from Auckland to Christchurch was only $77 AUD Make sure you check when booking anything as I researched and found that a rtn Perth to Auckland and then buy and extra on to christchurch was cheaper than a multi-stop booking for the exact same thing.
