1. Re: day trip from Arrowtown

All of your posts seem to have the same question! Since Te Anau is nearly half way to Milford Sound (and there is only one road to MS) you have to go through it unless you fly.

If you don't want to drive yourself, your choices are coach/cruise/coach from Queenstown to Milford in one day, not stopping in Te Anau (about 12-13 hours); coach/cruise/fly; or driving to Te Anau for 1 or 2 nights and doing the coach/cruise/coach from there. Any of these combinations can be booked in Queenstown when you arrive and have checked the weather forecast. Do not be put off doing the trip in the rain as it makes the waterfalls all the more spectacular.
