      Tranpsort from airport into the city

      Dunedin Feb 27, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      Hi - I will be arriving at Dunedin in late April - and find there is no bus into the city - 30 k away. The website recommends I prebook a shuttle. Do you think this is necessary? Or can I just rock up and find plenty waiting for customers? Also, the website makes no mention of cost. It just suggests that the more there are of you the cheaper it is. (It is very unsatisfactory actually.) A taxi costs about $90 apparently, so I don't want to do that.

      Has anyone arrived at Dunedin airport recently so knows what the story is?

    • 6 days in South Island, 3 nights based in Te Anau, 3 nights based in Queenstown area?

      Queenstown Feb 11, 2015 at 2:59 PM

      This is our first time to South Island, but won't be the last, that's why we are taking it easy instead of trying to see EVERYTHING. Please comment if this plan makes sense, or, you would advice differently -
      Dec. 20 1:00pm, arrive at Queenstown airport pickup rental car to drive to Te Anau
      Dec. 21-22, taking tours from touring companies from Te Anau to explore surrounding areas including the Sounds
      Dec. 23 drive back to Queenstown area, stay 3nights in Queenstown area,
      Dec. 24-25 explore Queenstown, Arrowtown, Wanaka, Glenorchy
      Dec. 26 Depart 3:40pm from Queentown airport

      We would appreciate your response and open to your suggestions.

      Thank you.

      I will be travelling from Picton to Christchurch. I can use either the intercity coach or the tranzcoastal train. Which would be a better option? Or perhaps a car?

      We are a family of 5(2adults/3 children aged 10,13,14) planning to tbe in Queen Charlotte Sound in early Dec. Looking to stay in one of the lodges in the sound for 3 nights and explore the Queen Charlotte track around the accomodation.
      Considering Endeavour Resort and Fishing Lodge. NOt much info on the net except their Website.

      Wonder if anyone has experience at the Resort or if they have other family self contained units (moderate price range NZ$200-300)to recommend for the family.

      Kayaking tours

      by cybergenic Online Now Nov 15, 2008 at 10:55 PM

      Hi there, has anyone had any experience with http://www.marlboroughsounds.co.nz/ kayaking tours?
      They look reasonable but personal experience is the proof in the pudding.
      Any other companies you can recomend for kayaking/camping would be apreciated.

      Thanks
