We will have a rental car in North Island, want to pick it up in Auckland, drive around for about 11 days, heading to Wellington at the end, leaving time for a visit to that city... then??? leave the car off at Wellington, take ferry to Picton and then a bus to Christchurch? OR Fly from Wellington to Christchurch ? Can we fly from Picton or closeby to Christchurch?
Our delima is: we may not get a chance to see the Northern part of the south island!! Is this a MUST see? Should we be sure to get to Picton and area and Able Taaman NP? we will be traveling both North and South Islands for a month? help
