      Firstly thanks for all the helpful info. Major change of plans decided to fly from Auckland to Christchurch rather than take the ferry

      Is it possible in a day to drive from Christchurch via Arthurs Pass to Greymouth - a friend who is married to a Kiwi laughed at the idea yet Google maps makes it 151 miles which would make it doable even on mountain roads given that we started early. Likewise I've been warned that the roads around Fox & Franz Joseph Glaciers are liable to close if there is heavy rain. In blunt terms is this scaremongering - equally a hol is for relaxing so we don't want stress

      All info much appreciated and I'm sorry for bothering VTs but I know the advice given is always top notch

      Many thanks

      where would be the best place for a 16 and a 17 year old girl to stay for a couple of nights? And the cheapest?

      Hi
      We are touring the south island in a van, having already done the north island and are pretty low on money. We wanted to hear someones advice on whether we can justify the expense of a Stewart Island trip (which appears quite pricey to us!)...is it just scenery etc that we can and have seen in other areas of NZ or is it worth a trip??
      Any info would be gratefully received!
      Thanks
