I will be planning a trip down to NZ, South Island only. I have been there once, so this time it is more directed. This trip will happen around Easter this year.
I will be going via Australia where I will do a stopover:
Day 1 NSW arrive
D 2 - shopping / church
D3 Fly to Christchurch
D 4– Christchurch to Fox Glacier by train and coach
D 5 – In Fox Glacier. Half Day Walk
D 6– Fox Glacier to Queenstown
D 7– Queenstown to Doubtful with Real Journeys for overnight cruise
D 8– Disembark from cruise and coach to Te Anau with Real Journeys arriving in Te Anau about 12.45pm
D 9 - 5 Day Milford Walk with Ultimate Hikes – start walk in Te Anau. The Walk does include a short cruise at the end on Milford Sound.
D 13- D 14 Queenstown R & R and fly back to NSW
D 15 Easter service and more shopping
D 16 fly home
Any tips and advice, esp on photo tips, clothing, weather etc will be much appreciated!
