Toluna's ANZ Road Trip: New Zealand's South Island
Closed

Hello, are you coming along? We've crossed the Tasman and landed in New Zealand's South Island. The landscape here is breathtaking! There's Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) and Mount Cook, making the South Island perfect for anyone looking to explore and experience the natural world at its best. Thrill seekers also recognise Queenstown as the location of the world's first commercial bungy site. Have you ever been bungy jumping? It looks fun but scary.

From glaciers to vineyards, mountains to beaches, we wish we had more time to spend here! No doubt there are many hidden gems that we don't know about - so tell us how you would experience New Zealand's South Island. You'll get 300 points for answering, and could also be featured in our upcoming video postcard!

Join us and win some points and prizes along the way! Keep track of our journey at our blog: http://tolu.na/l/z4F9SiAs6

I'd love to experience the South Island in the winter, the way I feel it's meant to be seen. The only time I've been to NZ was in the middle of summer, so I just stuck to the North Island and swore to go back some day soon.

I have never been NZ yet but I hope to travel sometime next year. I am looking forward to checking out the scenes and lovely nature they have to offer, and look forward to catching up with a friend on Nelson Island.

Toured NZ North and South Island many many years ago - it was such a great holiday; I would head back to South Island and explore more of the glaciers & parks there. Would also love to revisit Milford Sound again.

The South Island is great for a driving holiday. We hired a campervan a few years ago and just travelled at our own pace, stopping when we wanted and staying longer if somewhere took our fancy. Our daughters loved sleeping in the campervan. Our favourite places were Milford Sound and Lake Tekapo - so beautiful!

We went to the other side of the south island and spent time in Christchurch just after the earthquake and watched the re-building and the way the people made do with little until things started to right themselves. The Cheese Factory in Christchurch is just to die for and we had many side trips to Dunedin and up into the mountains.

I presume you've just flown into Christchurch to star your road trip, first stop will be the downtown which is slowly being rebuilt and a lot off progress has been made since that earthquake that devastated it way back on 22 February 2011 and you will be surprised at how it has gone ahead in the rebuild. have a read off this:

Start out from Christchurch and I hope you've picked the cities and towns you want to visit, there's Dunedin the city in New Zealand that is the most Scottish outside Scotland and is a university town the architecture is Victorian and there is even a castle called Larnach Castle. You can head inland from there to Queenstown and if you like hiking there are plenty off trails along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and you'll even see some scenery that was in Lord off the Rings. If you want a lazy day cruise the Lake on a steamship.
Milford Sound is a must you can do a tour or drive yourself but if you drive yourself you'll miss some great scenery and don't forget a cruise on Milford Sound weather permitting. Head north along the coast toward Picton taking in the towns along the way and when you reach the top head to Blenheim where you can see the vineyards and fruit growing areas on the way to catch the ferry from Picton to Wellington.
Would love to go back to South Island went years ago and it has probably changed so much now but always remember it as it was then so unspoilt but now with the tourist trade not sure if it is as good as it was then.
