Anyone heading to New Zealand's South Island in June/July later this year?

What would you be doing in NZ? I am looking at going there to backpack sometime mid-summer.

Hi Danny,

I hope to do a counter-clockwise direction on the South Island beginning and ending at Christchurch. Some places I hope to visit includes:

- Kaikoura
- Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park/Marlborough Sound (hope to do some tramping/trekking here)
- Greymouth/Shanty-town for a little history
- Franz Josef Glacier or Fox Glacier for a walk
- Queenstown/Wanaka (probably just Wanaka)
- Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound
- Invercagill
- Steward Island
- Dunedin
- Mount Cook National Park
- back to Christchurch

I'd also like to catch a ride on the TranzAlpine train travelling between Christchurch and Greymouth, heard the scenery is beautiful, but not too sure where it'll fit in my schedule for now.
