Plan a trip to south island of new zealand.
Anyone had self-drived there? Would like to check how easy it is to drive there.. what to look out for, etc....
- Is there any tollgate alone the state highways ?
- Is parking space easy to find at hotels and tourist places? What's the cost for parking?
- any good and cheap car renting company to recommend?
- how cold is late April ?
I am planning the following route:
Christchurch -> Greymouth -> Franz Josef Glacier / Fox Glacier -> Wanaka -> Queenstown -> Milford Sound -> Queenstown -> Mount Cook -> Christchurch
If time allows, -> Kaikoura, how long would this need?
Any advise is greatly appreciated
