      Late flight into Christchurch and Coach Ride to Queenstown

      Christchurch Jan 2, 2015 at 3:21 PM

      My husband and I are getting into Christchurch from Melbourne at 11:40PM. Should we take a taxi to our hotel in downtown Christchurch and how much do we expect to pay? What hotel with 24-hour reception would you recommend near the bus/coach station to Queenstown.

      Also, we will be taking the Newmans Coach from Christchurch to Queenstown. Has anyone experienced taking the Newmans Coach from Christchurch to Queenstown? How comfortable is the ride and are there restroom stops on the way? What do you recommend we do to have a stressfree time on the coach for 8 hours.

      Thank you so much for your input.

      How to go to Moeraki from Dunedin

      Moeraki Jan 17, 2015 at 1:57 AM

      Hi,

      I'd like to visit the boulders next week for my birthday. Just don't know the best way to go there without driving a car though. Is there a train going all the way to Moeraki boulders? Not quite sure if Dunedin railways only goes to Palmerston and Oumaru without stopping at Moeraki. Or should we get off Palmerston and find a way to go to Moeraki? Or is there any other way, by bus maybe? Appreciate 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?

      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
