Welcome to Top Oz Tours' (formerly The Big Bus) YouTube channel! In this episode of our online travel series, we bring you ten amazing things to do on a road trip around New Zealand's stunning South Island. Our list includes the chance to cruise the glacial waters of Milford Sound, take a spin on the Shotover River outside Queenstown with Shotover Jet, taste the famous pinot noirs of the Central Otago wine region, step back in time in New Zealand's only castle, and much more.

SHORTER 7 DAY GUIDE: Watch:

FAQ:
What month did we travel? July/August (Winter)

What rental company did we go through? Britz! The key is to pick-up and drop off in Christchurch. We also didn’t pay the insurance premiums through the company. Instead, we booked it through a 3rd party provider. My final tip, is to book it through a comparison website to get the best deal... for example Motorhome Republic! To be exact, our booking was $452.25 NZD for 9 days... what a winter special!

Where do you park at night? Some places you can free camp it, others you can't. We did a bit of both. However, on really cold nights we stayed at sites so we could use our extra portable heater which runs on power!!

New Zealand South Island | 10 Day Road Trip Itinerary

I travelled the South Island, New Zealand back in August 2019, and its only now (7th April 2021) that I'm finally uploading this video.

Take note, I may look younger in this video as I made the 'talking head' part of the video over a year ago too.

I'm very aware that New Zealand is still a difficult country to enter with its restrictions on entry during the pandemic, but I hope this video will give people planning a trip to New Zealand for the future some ideas.

Now we spend most of our time in New Zealand, experiencing our own country through the eyes of a tourist and sharing that all here, with you.

New Zealand Holiday Itinerary — Travel Costs, Things To Do & Best Places To Visit

If you're thinking about a New Zealand holiday and want to know some of the top things to do and the best places to visit in New Zealand you're in the right place!... The first 1000 people to use this link will get a free trial of Skillshare Premium Membership: ⬇ More Below ⬇

A New Zealand holiday is what dreams are made of! As a couple of proud Kiwis we want you to have the best time here, so this video is a recap of our adventure with an overload of information to help with your New Zealand travel planning!

We tried to make a video that we personally would have wanted to find before we planned our holiday in our motorhome / campervan — so hopefully even if you're from NZ yourself this is still valuable to you.

To stay up to date with our New Zealand travel guide we'll be sending out email updates, keep in touch with us here —

Reveal NZ was a 23 part video series in a campervan showing the ultimate New Zealand holiday. Though to be fair, we still had recommendations about some of the top things to do in New Zealand that we missed of the best places to visit that we either a) couldn't get to for what ever reason, b) regret not spending enough time at or c) didn't plan in at all — so you can benefit from that! More than just taking a motorhome around New Zealand, the videos were about how to travel New Zealand, the top tourist spots, the hidden local gems, incredible day trips, extreme activities, amazing accommodation and a spot of wining and dining... The series is about making you feel like you're along for the travels with us, so grab a drink of your poison, sit back and get ready for 5 weeks driving in a campervan hire from Auckland to The Catlins.

It's been a while since I put up a video... My apologies. This is part 1 of a few videos I'll be putting up from our 3 week adventures in New Zealand when New Zealand's Boarders opened up to Australia. In this vlog we roadtrip from Queenstown to Aoraki / Mt Cook National Park.

Comment '????' if you're reading this. (:
