What is the best driving route from Christchurch to Wanaka, New Zealand?
We’re going this Saturday and I was wondering what’s the best route to take. Thanks!
I do that trip heaps. I find the best way is to go south on State Highway 1 until the town of Rangitata, where you turn right at the sign pointing to Geraldine. Then follow that road for hours. You then turn right just after Tarras, and follow the signs to Wanaka. You might want to look at a map if you don’t know that part of the country. You see some good scenery this way – lakes and stuff.
