We visited NZ a few years ago and loved it so much we are returning. Last trip we didn't get to see the north of the South Island and very much want to see the sights of Queen Charlotte Sound. We will be travelling in the South Island in a motor home.
My question is, would it be best to either fly into Wellington just to enable us to do the Ferry crossing to Picton then hire a motor home from there before embarking on our trip commencing with the Queen Charlotte Drive toward the West coast, or would it be better to fly into Christchurch (we did this on the last trip) and drive to Picton and do a scenic cruise before continuing on our trip.
Thank you for your advise.
