We are touring the southern part of the south island commencing and ending our trip in Queenstown. I have driven over the Crown Range before and I know that I need to carry snow chains if we drive this route in winter. Will I need snow chains for other major roads in early August?
As well as visiting Wanaka for two nights, we plan on driving the Southern Scenic Route and having a night or two on Sewart Island.
Regarding Bluff, where do I find these legendary oysters that you guys rave on about?
Are there oyster leases / farms selling direct to the public?
