I've ridden almost all of the South Island of New Zealand and this section of road takes first place for the most fun time of them all.

It has so many great corners linked together through almost 30 kilometers of mountainous road, and all of it topped with a creamy smooth asphalt surface.

There's even some of the most spectacular scenery to be had along the way(if you care to slow down enough to look).

Book a night in Motueka because you'll just want to spend the entire day here going back and forth till you've stripped all of the tread from your tires.

Aramoana - Careys Bay

Excellent ride from Dunedin to the coast, both for the corners, and the scenery. The road is right on the edge of the water for most of the journey and it's especially good at high tide.

As good a trip on the bike as the southern side of the harbour, but with a slightly higher speed limit for the most part and less of the blue lights on display.

Nice old pub in Careys Bay for lunch or a coffee as well.

Heading north from the Arrowtown end you head straight up a series of switch-backs and climb quickly to a stunning view back over Queenstown.

From there it's a very fast run with a few corners as you head up into the Crown Range proper and once you start up the mountain you either go slow and enjoy the view or pour on the power and take advantage of smooth bitumen and some wicked fast corners.

Once over the top you head out through some wider bends along the gorge before finally arriving at Cardrona and enjoy a cold one at the old pub.

Not as good as the Takaka Hill just north of Motueka but still a great road on the way to and from the great Takaka Hill run.
