Christchurch to Dunedin

We are arriving in Christchurch early Sept.

Day 1: Christchurch

Day 2: Akaroa, Moeraki ,Dunedin

Day 3: Otago Peninsular, Middlemarch, Ranfurly Alexandria then on to Wanaka.

I'm interested in hearing from anyone that has travelled this route for suggestions on not to miss sights and realistic travelling time?

How can anyone go to Dunedin and not go out to the end of the peninsular?

I agree with everyone else, akaroa needs a day to itself. Chch-Dunedin is a 4 hour drive (without stops). The Otago peninsular is a MUST. 10 days in Wanaka? Must be going in the hope of skiing.
