Auckland to Christchurch

NZ's online relocation service that offers free use of rental cars and campervans

About the journey

The 600 mile trip from Auckland to Christchurch takes around 15 hours to complete, and involves crossing from the North Island to the South Island. This means taking a ferry across the Cook Strait. This crossing from Wellington to Picton has been called one of the most beautiful in the world, offers travellers spectacular views of the Kaikoura Ranges and Oteranga Bay. Travellers taking this route have the chance to visit many exciting stop offs, such as the twelve kilometre long Franz Josef Glacier, or the city of Rotorua, where geothermal activity causes steam to rise up along the roadside and out of the surrounding hills. Travellers will also have the chance to visit Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand.
