my 2 kids (11 & 9) and I will be spending 3 nights in Te Anau in December following a 3D2N ride on the Otago Rail Trail. We will probably arrive at Te Anau close to dinner time (from Omakau) and will be doing a farmstay (self -catered) for 3 nights.
Have a couple of questions:
1. Any recommendations on family friendly restaurants there and would they be open at 7 -8 pm in December? Do most restaurants do takeout?
2. We will be using one of the 2 full days there to do a drive to/from Milford Sound. I am hoping to get the first boat out to avoid the crowds. What time should I target to leave Te Anau?
3. Still undecided about the glow worm tour as we are headed to Hokitika on our way back to Christchurch. Are there any family friendly walks / activities we can do around Te Anau?
