So my Wife and I have decided to drive from Christchurch to Queenstown in August this year. This'll be my first time doing the drive so I was looking for any advice on: a) Places to stop (not overnight, just for photos or lunch etc). b) Route to take (being aware of snow and ice etc). c) What to expect (setting off from CC early morning on a Friday). Love some feedback from those who have done it. Thanks legends.
