Day 3: Explore Queenstown and surrounds
Although celebrated as New Zealand's "adventure capital", Queenstown offers far more than a fast paced action-packed holiday. Settled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu beneath a soaring panorama of the Remarkables Mountain Range, this alpine town is surrounded by a plethora of historic, gastronomic and scenic wonders.
Day 4: Queenstown - Dunedin
Your route today is a historic one with many small towns along the way. Stop at the Kawarau Gorge to watch others bungy jump while you build the courage to try it yourself - or not!
Day 5: Explore Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
Known as the "Edinburgh of the South", Dunedin City has a heavy Scottish influence. Surrounded by rugged coastal plains and windswept beaches it is home to an eclectic mix of historical and modern architecture as well as industrial technology.
Day 6: Dunedin - Queenstown
This drive takes you through the heart of the historical Otago Goldfields. The road follows the South Island's longest river, the Clutha, and at Clyde you will see one of the largest hydro power stations harnessing its energy before passing through the Gibbston Wine Valley to arrive back in Queenstown.
Depending on when your flight departs you might have time for one last Queenstown adventure before dropping your car off at the airport and catching your flight.
