Hi all, we are planning a trip to NZ in January 08
At this stage we are planning 4 nights in Queenstown, then 2 nights in Te Anau, then 7 nights in Auckland (use that as a base to explore the surrounding area, free accomodation with rellies), then 2 nights in Omaha followed by 2 nights in the Bay of Islands - most likely Paihia.
We have some ideas for accomodation in most places but still open to suggestions for Queenstown, Te Anau and Paihia if anyone has any! We have two young children aged 6 and 3, and will be hiring a car. Because of the kidlets we'd really prefer a 2 bedroom apartment/bach as a minimum, but of course there's the budget to consider... so trying to keep it under $180 per night.
Recommended activities/tours/cruises in the BOI with 2 children?
Is Paihia the best place to stay in BOI, or should we try Russell?
