My husband and I with our two boys are heading to NZ in January and are starting on the North Island staying with family and friends. We will catch the ferry from Wellington to Picton and are not sure which direction to head from Picton having never been that far north on the South Island before. We have 14 days from arriving in Picton. I am leaning towards travelling down the west coast and back up through the middle as we will fly out of Christchurch. Can anyone please give me some idea where we should head from Picton?
