Travel Plans for Nov 2017

by /bio/reshmisn »


We are planning a trip to NZ in Nov 2017. We are a family of 6 ( 2 adults, 2 kids ages 9 and 5) and our parents (late 60's & early 70s) will be joining us too. We will be travelling from CA, US and our parents will join us from India. 

The question I have is would 10 days (not including travel time) be a good enough time for us to visit NZ.  Here were some of the places I shortlisted based on what I have read so far. I was thinking we could arrive at Auckland. 

Visit Rotura, Wellington, Christchurch and return from Queenstown. How many days should we target to stay at each of these places? Should we consider making one place a base and do day trips?

Any places that we should skip considering are 10 days or any places that we should absolutely visit?

Any advise is greatly appreciated.
