|Subject: Re: New Zealand South Island Suggestions|
Ziners, We had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks in the south
island about 4 years ago & were awestruck by the scenery. The
places you mentioned are all worth looking at but do not
overlook visiting the west coast & Milford Sound, even on a
bad weather day it's very impressive, if you are lucky
enough to strike a good day it is absolutely awesome.
You will find the locals very friendly & you may consider staying at the Youth Hostels which are dotted throughout the island, we met many of your compatriots doing the same during our visit.
