Our trip is planned for Jan. One leg of the trip will be driving from Franz Josef to Hanmer Springs. Accommodations have been made and confirmed. This website forum has been wonderful in helping me. I am looking for ideas on things we should try not to miss while making the drive. I hope to make a side trip to see the Pancake Rocks along the way. I realize this drive alone may be as long as 7 hours without stops. Unfortunately to see NZ as we wanted we needed a few LONG days and this is one.
Thank you very much
