Travel via inland scenic route from Christchurch to geraldine - this route starts by leaving ChCh on the west coast road and joining highway 72 round Darfield.

From Geraldine travel through Timaru to Waimate to Kurow which brings you to the Waitaki Valley area. As you are wanting to get to Milford travel up the valley to Omarama and through Lindis Pass to Queenstown and Te Anau or go to Duntroon and travel over the scenic Danseys Pass which is a shingle road, well used and see some of the real New Zealand. From there would go to Alexandra and Queenstown area.

On way back from Te Anau/ Milford could travel to Gore then up into Central Otago ( not sure if you want to go to Dunedin or not) - and end up coming back up highway one from Palmerston to oamaru and to christchurch.

Lots of options really but as you want to go to Milford and it is a long way would imagine you would need to concentrate on areas south of Christchurch as your time is short.

Good luck.

You could travel Chch to Greymouth over the Arthurs Pass, then down the west coast via the glaciers, then to Wanaka before going to Milford. From Milford, go to Dunedin, Omarau and back to Chch. That way you'd be seeing both coasts and a contrast of scenery.
