Hola! A mate and I will be doing the midnight run (hire car)from Christchurch Airport to Queenstown on Friday night. Can anyone tell me the quick route to Queenstown from Christchurch? and how long does the trip take roughly?
Hi Darren. Which Friday night. Last week? How did it go? Or this week? It's close to 500km and should take about 7 hours. Go via Waimate, Omarama, the Lindis Pass and Cromwell, but make sure the roads are open first. Otherwise, turn off SH1 at Palmerston and go via Alexandra. Good luck. Let me know how you went! cheers Roger
