Te Anau & Manapouri

Lake Te Anau is the biggest lake in South Island. Te Anau is the gateway to Milford Sound and Manapouri is the gateway to Doubtful Sound. This is a very ideal base to explore the Fiods and walk the Great Walks such as the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler Tracks.

Manapouri is just a 20 mins drive from Te Anau It is a quieter town than Te Anau and has a beautiful Fraser Beach and a Pearl Harbour.

You could spend half a day to visit the Wildlife Park, Ivon Wilson Park, Dock Bay, Te Anau Museum and DOC.

If you like adventure, there are some paid activities gloworm caves, high ride -quads horse treks, westray horse trek, skydive fiordland, luxmore jet, golf, mini golf, cinema, scenic flights, float planes, helicopters, boat cruises, sea kayaking, underwater diving, cycling, fishing and trekkings are some activities that you could go for in Te Anau.

    Hi jen, thanks for dropping by :) Te Anau is a simple and laid-back town by the lake which I enjoyed spending sometime there and chatting with the locals :)
