Milford Sound is beautiful - you can do a day visit and walk along the shoreline (and don't forget to visit the Discovery Center, a quick boat ride across the sound!), or take an overnight cruise with one of the companies that offers them. If it's been rainy (and they say that it usually is), the waterfalls are especially active.

Chose a kayak trip over the more pedestrian cruise, so got up very close to the falls. The scale of the cliffs are hard to describe until you are in the Sound - just enormous. Very imposing when down at water level in a 2 man kayak! We had a full day here rather than day trip and so glad... More

We were told by several hotel staff in Queenstown that this was a long journey for a day trip. It was a bit of a drive, but very do-able. Milford Sound was magnificent! Breathtaking views in every direction. This is a must do journey if you are on the South Island. Total time from Queenstown to parking at Milford Sound... More

This really is as amazing as everyone says. The bus trip from Te Anau to Milford is part of the experience too. A good tip which I picked up from TripAdvisor is to order the Obento lunch box. You spend considerably less time at lunch (no queuing for the buffet) and have more time for the extraordinary scenery.
