    Recently I've got the travel bug again. Instead of going somewhere in Europe, I want to go on an adventure. :woo: :holmes:

    I'm looking at going to Australia and New Zealand next year after the academic year finishes. I'll be in my final year then and it'd be a cool time to go there for a while - (4-6 weeks that is). :party:

    Here's my provisional itinerary, just by thinking about it...


    Week 1Flight 1: UK > Dubai - Stopover in Dubai for a few days to stay with my cousin. Flight 2: Dubai > Brisbane. Flight 3: Brisbane > Gladstone. Stay in Gladstone for about a week with friend.
    Week 2Continue to stay in Gladstone. Flight 4: Gladstone > Brisbane. Flight 5: Brisbane > Christchurch, NZ. Stay with family for a few days in NZ.
    Week 3Backpack around the beautiful parts of NZ :woo:
    Week 4Flight 6: Christchurch > Brisbane. Stay with friends in Brisbane for a week. :woo:
    Week 5Flight 7: Brisbane > Sydney. Stay there for a week, own hotel and 'do everything'. Flight 8: Sydney > Brisbane
    Week 6Have a few days with my friends again, soak up one or two more sites or just chill :iiam: Flight 9: Brisbane > Dubai. Flight 10: Dubai > UK.


    Total cost of flights: £1160ish (based on estimations from fares in a couple of months in the 'off season'.

    What do you guys think? Where should I go when in New Zealand (south island)?

    Hi there!

    That is quite a lot to squeeze in the time you have, I like your style! Do you have any idea where you want to backpack in New Zealand?

    I'd love to visit Queenstown and the ****ord sound, but I'm really more interested in the beauty of that country and going to explore the hidden parts of it. I might extend the NZ part of my trip to 2 weeks.
