Wanaka to Te Anau

I'll be spending 10 days on the South Island in February. Part of my itinerary involves a night in Wanaka and then immediately to Milford Sound the next morning. My question is what is the driving time from Wanaka to Te Anau? I saw there is a coach/cruise/coach that leaves Te Anau at 10:20 and wondered if it is possible to make it there in time from Wanaka. Otherwise we'll just drive to Milford Sound ourselves.

If you drive from Wanaka over the Crown Range and on to Te Anau the drive is about 3 hours. If driving via Cromwell it would take an additional 20 to 30 minutes.

Happy planning :)
