New Zealand Driving Map Queenstown / Wellington / Auckland


Start: Queenstown
Finish: Auckland
Recommended Length: 13 Days
Distance: 2564 km (1603 miles)

Earlier this year, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Helen Clark, spent five days in the company of Peter Greenberg, Chief Correspondent for the Travel Channel.  She showed Peter her view of New Zealand, which at times had him slightly terrified. This itinerary follows a similar path to that taken by the pair, experiencing the same activities, and adding a few more in along the way.
