Driving Distances

Does anyone know of a good website that can tell me the distances between cities in New Zealand? I want to drive a lot, but will fly to major spots if it seems more efficient to fly.

you have to remember that in the south island of NZ you are in what a friend of mine affectioantly reffered to as the antarctic riviera. the water will be cold and if the wind comes up it could be very chilly. you also have to consider the possibility of sitting in wet clothes and the chill factor that will add. i go paddling on morton bay here in Qld and even in summer (when temps are around 30DC) we take a woolen layer incase the wind comes up.

it sounds like you are going to have a fantastic time.
