Travel from Auckland to Queenstown on a beautiful journey through New Zealand. Along the way, stop in the harbourside oasis of Tauranga, the geothermal city of Rotorua, the lakeside town of Taupo, and Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. From Wellington catch the Interislander ferry to Picton (travel included in your pass).
From the port town of Picton, you'll travel down the east coast through Kaikoura, Christchurch, and Dunedin. Finally, your journey will take you to Queenstown, a popular adventure sports destination and the gateway to the Southern Alps. Your pass also includes a day trip to Milford Sound, the breathtaking fiord located in the heart of Fiordland National Park.
Your pass is divided into the following 'legs'. You can book travel in either direction (i.e. follow the itinerary from top to bottom or bottom to top). You can also stop as often as you like along the way on each leg (for example, on the Christchurch to Dunedin leg you could book from Christchurch to Timaru, Timaru to Oamaru and Oamaru to Dunedin).
IMPORTANT: When you book tours you need to search for travel to and from the stops shown. Your Milford Sound cruise will be shown under 'extras' on the bus services for these tours. You must select and add the cruise to your cart in order to book it. You can also add other extras to your tours in the same way.
