Te Anau township is renowned as the "sightseeing and walking capital of the world", gateway to Fiordland National Park - part of Te Wahipounamu – South West New Zealand World Heritage Area.
Lake Te Anau is the second largest New Zealand lake surrounded by high rugged mountains with three arms resembling sea fjords (and they were truly named fiords). During the summer the hot and dry weather encourages scenic cruising, water skiing, fishing and kayaking on the lake. During the winter, days are crisp and clear with frosty mornings and sunny days, ideal for landscape and nature photography.
The road to Milford Sound (State Highway 94 info) is considered to be one of the world’s finest alpine drives. Explore rugged mountain ranges, glacier-carved valleys, crystal clear blue lakes, wild rivers and native rainforest. The scenery can be distracting – if you drive take your time, be aware of other road users and if you wish to enjoy the views pull over with plenty of warning.
