As this route contains the section Kaikoura to Wellington, please be aware that the route is affected by the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake. State Highway 1 down the coast is closed, so you may need to modify the route to go via Lewis Pass. Consider adding nights in St Arnaud or Hanmer Springs. See NZTA for route status.
