State Highway 94, or the Milford Road leads to Milford Sound, 120 km away to the north. While Milford Sound is a major tourist attraction, the trip itself is just as spectacular and should not be rushed. There are several scenic stops along the route that provide unique views. With about 2,500 visitors a day travelling to Milford Sound at peak times it pays to get an early start.
* Cruise Te Anau - Relax on a boutique cruise to the South Fiord of Lake Te Anau.
* Te Ana-Au Caves - A boat trip and guided tour lets visitors see stalagmites, stalactites and glow-worms.
* Lake Marrion - Off the hollyford road on the way to Milford lies one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Any of the many tracks located in the area. Te Anau isn't called the walking capital of the world for no reason!
Don't miss out on going to milford, taking a cruise, and enjoying the scenic wonderland. For once its probably better to take a bus, they don't rush it and you get good quality commentry.
Adventure sports!!! Kayaking, climbing, skydiving, jetboating + lots more is all in Te Anau.
