    Looking for help from my NZ friends. Or anyone with knowledge.

    So, the family are going to NZ for the first time next year August.
    We would like to know what's good and what's not.
    Looking to ski, we've never done it so considered all considered newbs
    We are also planning on a LOTR trip to Hobbiton ;)
    Thanks

    I’d suggest spending most of your time in the South Island. The skiing is much more predictable from a weather perspective. And from a tourist perspective, there’s more to do. Sorry hobbiton.
    But isn’t South Africa closer?

    Do people think I live in another planet...hang on .... don't answer that ;)

    Our rough plan is land in Christchurch and spend a few days there, then head on up to Queenstown for a 5 day ski event. Will try to get Milford Sound done at the tail end here. Go back to Christchurch to kick the kids out. The missus and I will fly to Auckland to do a LOTR 14 day tour that ends in Queenstown. Once done we'll hit a few things that only we are interested in and then back to Christchurch to fly home.

    Yep, beautiful. And with other beauties, it's combined with a financial hemorrhage :).

    Cardrona pass!!
    Awesome road to drive. It would be a wicked race section if they could block off each end.
