Lots to do especially for the six year old. Hope this helps. These are all areas I frequent frequently, so do ask more questions if you want. We will take the advice and travel via Arthur's Pass first and back via Hanmer Springs. Lots of other great tips too, thank you. We have spoken to a couple of people about the DOC campsites along the way and it looks like we can't pre-book but that availability won't be an issue.
Are there any views contrary to this? With regards to staying in campsites around Christchurch - does anyone have a recommendation?

We don't want anywhere too noisy or commercial but somewhere quite central would be useful. Hmmmm, camping grounds in Chch is not so easy these days. Personally I do think the Top 10 would be more family friendly though. North South is more set up for the permanent residents. Log in to get trip updates and message other travellers.

Ask a question. See All Christchurch Conversations. Chinatown in Christchurch? View Hotel. Airport Lodge Motel. The Castle. Travelling in your own vehicle is the best way to see New Zealand. However if you are coming here on short holidays renting is the way to go.
Where to Next
I would highly recommend renting a campervan for the duration of your travel. It will give you the freedom of travelling at your own pace without having have to spend money on hotels. Motorhome Republic is an awesome search engine for campers and motorhomes. If however an idea of camping makes you cringe and you like the comfort of a hotel room, you can just rent a compact car.

This entire stretch of road is spectacular but one part stands out more than any other - The Lindis Pass. The drive from Lake Wanaka to Lake Pukaki should only take around 2 hours. That is two hours continuous driving. If you were to stop every time you saw an amazing view this journey is going to take a hell of a lot longer.
Frequently asked questions when hiring a car in New Zealand
This breathtaking journey is a must do for every keen driver. Just be warned….. This road WILL test your vehicle, make sure to take some extra supplies ; and a camera with full battery and an empty memory card. Do you know those bags on aeroplanes that are designed to throw up in?
Take some of these if you plan on driving on the west coast. Sounds great I know!!!! The road that connects Christchurch with Hokitika and Greymouth is a windy mountainous stretch of road that passes through, in my opinion, New Zealand's one of the most beautiful national park - Arthur's Pass. It's hard to keep your eyes on the road. Has anybody heard of that level on Mariokart called Rainbow Road?
Well that's a doddle compared to this monster. The mountain pass taken by the fellowship of the ring The main road that connects Queenstown and Wanaka offers breathtaking views around every corner, which is a huge bonus if you have an overheating car like I did.
