“Rangers are very helpful”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The rangers working at the visitor center are very helpful and wiling to answer all your questions about the park. There are numerous hikes, huts and climbs one can embark on while visiting Mount Cook National Park, and the rangers do all they can to help you find the right information you need. The museum and documentary are also very informative.

“The best visitor centre we used in New Zealand”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Lots of information about the area, including a good display of the history. Helpful on locality and walks and not trying to push any paid tours.

“Nice place”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The visitor centre was very nice and clean. There was lots to look at and learn about the area. They have a gift shop where I bought some nice gloves for my walks. Watch out for the ice in the parking lot during winter! haha
