New Zealand Driving Map Christchurch / Fiordland / Christchurch


Start: Christchurch
Finish: Christchurch
Recommended Length: 9 Days
Distance: 1976 km (1235 miles)

Prepare for a deep south journey that will fill your memory with mountain scenery and unusual eco experiences. Braided rivers are a feature of the drive to Oamaru, where you’ll see Moeraki’s weird spherical boulders. In Dunedin you’ll discover albatrosses, and historic architecture. The Catlins region, on the way to Invercargill, is a chance to meet the creatures of the wild south. Make the ferry crossing to Stewart Island for a close encounter with kiwis, then cruise Milford Sound before you kick up your heels in Queenstown. Mount Cook and glacial lakes are highlights of the return journey to Christchurch.
