Thanks to all forum replies I have finally booked my air tixkets and hotels for Nov/Dec trip as 2 adults + 1 child (7-yr old).
I have a tendency to plan plan plan. So been mapping my route/attractions/restaurants as much as possible on Google Maps.
As it's our first road trip in NZ, wanted to find out if i should also be mapping in petrol stations/supermarkets along the way? Any thing i shld take note for my itin below?
I seem to read a lot about buying groceries from supermarkets/self cater apartment. I thought there were decent number of eateries (at least so far in mapping my first few days of the trip). Or is there something i am missing out? Groceries more for breakfast? snacking? or dinners?
My itin below:
Day 1 CHC rest day
Day 4 Dunedin -TeAnau (Which route should i take?? Night Glow worm caves tour)
Day 5 Milford Sound cruise (likely taking the coach + cruise so as to enjoy the scenic drive)
Day 7 Queenstown (Tss Earnslaw and Walter peak -- is walter peak any fun for the child? the sheep show doesnt seem very interactive)
Day 8 Queenstown - Lake wanaka overnight
Day 9 Wanaka - Mt Cook (staying Aoraki Court - which days to go mt john observatory?)
Day 11 Lake Tekapo-CHC . Overnight CHC JUCY snooze at airport
Day 12 flight home
