If you have 25 days on ground, arriving in Sydney and leaving from Sydney, how long and where would you suggest to best allocate time spend for Sydney, the surrounding area of Sydney and NZ? What would be your ideal itinerary, logistics and activities in your experience to make it an once in a lifetime trip if we never go back to these 2 countries again in our lifetime.
We are an active family with boys. Unfortunately, skiing isn’t out top priority, but hiking, local culture, food, scenery, kayaking are. Main reason to NZ is for Lord of the Rings.
Thank you so so much!!!
