Dec-Feb, OZ and NZ

So I got my tickets (25 Dec-21 Feb) and I'm finally heading down under! I'm looking for advice, tips, must-dos, etc. Besides climbing, I want to get in some diving, and try surfing. Of course, as a child who loves animals, I want to see the Koalas and kangeroos and platypi and great whites (I helped my nephew do a shark science project).

Because I'll be flying a lot, I need to keep myself to 20 kilos including climbing/camping gear. My itinerary (which I am trying to book flights for soon) is roughly: Sydney--Townsville (I will visit a friend)--(Auckland - or skip it and just do S. Isalnd?)-- S. Island-- Melbourne/Tasmania and head back towards Sydney. I was thinking about skipping Brisbane area becasue apparently summer is not the time for Frog Buttress but there appears to be climbing all over these countries and I am staying up way to late as soon as I find some links!

My itinerary is something like:

yeah, I definitely had that on the itinerary (first thing, actually!) any other ideas? recommendations for wildlife parks? surfing? diving?

Castle Hill on the South Island (about an hour or so from Christchurch) is a must. There is also heaps of sport climbing down south.
