The most amazing natural attraction we have seen in New Zealand, in the southwest of the stunning South Island. We travelled by car from Queenstown, staying in Te Anau on the way there and back. Getting there is half the fun. The beauty of this area takes your breath away. Cold in winter, but fewer tourists.

There have been enough reviews of this destination that my few words will mean nothing in comparison. If you are within reach and don't go to Milford Sound, then you only have yourself to blame. An absolute must on any visit to teh South Island

Friends had told us about Milford sound, and we'd watched programmes on TV but nothing came near to actually doing the trip ourselves. From the time we left Te Anau and drove through the the fantastic countryside we were mesmerised. The weather had been foul for a couple of days, but the sun came out just as we drove through...

Beautiful in all weather, enjoyable for everyone, minimum of one day if travelling from Te Anau, make sure to pack lunch, a camera and wear comfortable and waterproof walking shows if you want to stop off at any of the sights on the way.

A wonderful place on earth. We went on one of the many rainy days there (I have been told it rains around 300 days a year in the area). But due to this rain there are waterfalls everywhere. The cliffs are so high and the mist around it give a cool mysterious view. Dont miss out on this place!

What can i say, if the nature is something which full your heart of emotions, you cannot miss this place in the world, at least once in lifetime. It is truly something you will not find elsewhere, with its mix of Fiord environment fitted into an exhotic surrounding flora and fauna, typical of New Zealand. I really want to come... More

Although fairly well cut off and difficult/expensive to reach without a car, the pay off is worth it because the scenery here is world class.

If you go to the Milford sound,ensure you stay on a boat for the night.There are lots of companies and you dont have to pay very much .Its wonderful to wake up to the silence.To appreciate its beauty is to see in from a boat and kayak.New Zealand is one of the best countries Ihave ever visited ,and this place...
