Your holiday plan is authentic, is it not a mass produced package tour nor is it written by a fleeting blogger who spent less than three months in Australia and New Zealand and posted a general guide to their road trip.

The itinerary is curated by a local for locals who live, work and holiday here. Recommended accommodation or eateries have been road tested where I paid the bill. I am not being paid a commission to write travel porn about how good a place or venue is. Local knowledge will give you accurate travel times and distances.
