So, two of us want to get away to australia for the summer (june-july), and while we're on the opposite side of the world, we might as well hop over to new zealand. The plan is about 4 weeks split between the two places. Looking for budget to low accomodation - camping if necessary. We're definitely thinking of hiring a car to get around for some bits. Any help in any area will be more than appreciated. Places to go, things to do, how to best get around etc. Both of us are hobbyist photographers so I'm searching around for more nature and scenery (both of which we'll get plenty of in either country I'm sure) The trouble is finding the best places in the short time we have. I personally love the waters and will be taking any and every opportunity to snorkel/dive. So forumites.... feel free to put in your 2 cents.
