    It`s South..Christchurch...and drive up North to Auckland...!!!
    You would miss out on some of the greatest sights in the country which are located on the south-west of Christchurch though.
    Consider taking a flight between Christchurch and Rotorua which would save at least two days of driving. Whichever way you do it, it's going to be a rush trip to cover both N & S Islands.

    Heres's my 2 cents worth:

    Go further south!

    You have 12 days. Spend 8 days South and 4 days to drive from Wellington to Auckland.

    Some of the nicest place in NZ is to the south of Christchurch. Lake Tekapo, Fox Glacier, Queenstown, Te Anau, Milford Sound etc. For me the drive from Christchurch to Lake Tekapo to Queenstown and then to Te Anau and Milford Sound is a must do while in NZ.

    Here is a link to the hours of drive by driving route

    Here is a link to a driving holiday

    Drive the coastal route in South Island - Te Anau to Bluff to Dunedin. Recommended by the colleague who when before me. We only managed to drive from Bluff to Dunedin via the coastal route. Great scenery. The coastal route is off the main tour routes.

    Also an opportunity to reach the southern most point. They have some pretty good fish and chips there. Elsewhere in NZ too.

    Do share some advice after you get back. One of my future destination. I plan to do at least 2 weeks to a month when I do NZ.
