I'm heading over to Wanaka from Melbourne in late October for a wedding. Got a couple of days in Wanaka before the betrothal then about 6 days in Q'town before heading back to OZ. I haven't been to the south island for a long time and i am open to suggestions for some easy walks or anything else. I figure the skiing will be kaput by that time! Anyway, just booked a car and accomodation and really looking forward to it. I have visited Auckland (Papakura) a couple of times in the last few years but have not been to the south island for about 20 years or so.
