P.S. I recommend milford over doubtful, you can google for alot of comparison in the net
I'm fine with night driving.
I ever drove thru Great Ocean Road (Melb) at night + drizzling back in Aug 2011.
The next day, drove back like 30mins or so before continuing the journey

Milford too commercial I heard ? So many boats & helicopters...
Although I'm really keen to drive on TeAnau - Milford Highway. Use Google Maps & 'drove' thru using the mouse.. very scenic drive !

Thanks to Sellun & Veryred, updated my itineraries:

1-3) 26 Jul-29Jul: no change
4) 30 Jul: (leave at 08:00?) drive back to Auckland, take 14:40 flight to Nelson. Pick-up car @Nelson Airport & stay 1 night.
5) 31 Jul: 4hr drive to Greymouth & stay 1 night
6) 1 Aug: 3hr drive to franz Josef & stay 1 night
7) 2 Aug: 6hr drive to Q/town & stays 3 nights (gondola, jetboat, bungy, Coronet Peak, Milford/Doubtful Sound)
8) 5 Aug: 4hr drive to Dunedin (Monarch Widlife Cruises, Larnach Castle), stay 1 night
9) 6 Aug: 5-6hr drive to Mt. Cook (Lake Tekapo, salmon ?), stay 1 night. Very likely drive back to Cromwell then (as Veryred suggested) enjoys Lindiss Pass
10) 7 Aug: 5hr drive to Christchurch, stay 2 nights.
Any idea what to see/do at Christchurch since I'll return the car at 4pm on the 8th ?
11) 9 Aug: 06:30 flight to Sydney then to Sgp
