If your into astronomy an overnight in Tekapo is good. (About half way between Queenstown and Christchurch). They run night tours out/up to the observatory with very large telescope. We took the kids up there years ago on a cold clear night.........was pretty amazing. They also run 1hr joy flights from Tekapo (plane and helicopter), out over and around Mt Cook. Great experience!Flights booked Finally going to make it to NZ to ski.
Re my Plans so far.. Sat August 7th, late arrival Christchurch mid night,ish . Pick up Hire car Sunday, head to accom in Wanaka for 6 days, plan to ski Cardona and possibly TC. Then 2 nights Sat & Sun just outside Queenstown, to do touristy stuff.
So we have 3 nights before we depart on Thursday. We would like to have a look around Christchurch, 2 nights. Not sure if to travel Queenstown to CHC on the Monday and have 3 nights near CHC or spend a night on the way to CHC, just not sure where.? Im open to suggestions, thanks
