Hi Barry, a good question for you. We will be driving from CHC for Te Anau starting October 26 taking the Lake Tekapo route. I have penciled in a note that a realistic goal that day is Queenstown. Just how long does it take to drive at the posted speed limit. I would sooner keep going rather than stopping at QTWN. I guess another factor is the weather and when sunset happens. See my other email regarding reservations.
