New Zealand distances and Driving Times:

The South Island of New Zealand is a mountainous country, with winding roads, so once out of the cities and away from the motorway system, travel times can be much longer than you would guess just by looking at distances on a map

Even in the North Island, though by no means as mountainous as the South Island (except in the Central Volcanic Plateau area bordered by Taupo/ Taumaranui/ Ohahune/ Waiouru), many winding gorges can often increase times over what you would expect.

The following chart (distances in km, time in hours and minutes) therefore gives you a conservative indication of the time taken to drive between various points of interest, assuming you travel at a moderate speed with occasional stops to look at scenery or points of interest - non-stop times are about 80% of these times.
