"Doubtful Sound" Doubtful Sound Travelogue by 2Cities1Love

Doubtful Sound Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 65 photos

We had many highlights on our South island adventure and Doubtful Sound would have to be up there with the best of them. Just to get there is a journey in itself and then to experience the vastness of its wilderness is something we had never come across.

The Journey To Doubtful Sound

Picked up from Te Anau Lakeview Holiday Park, on our way to Doubtful Sound.

Crossing Lake Manipouri

We thought we were in for dark and gloomy weather while crossing Lake Manipouri, but once we reached Wilmot Pass we were bathed in sunshine.

West Arm, Lake Manipouri

From West Arm we had a bus trip through Wilmot Pass and stopped along the way for some great snaps.

Wilmot Pass

It was a steady incline driving through Wilmot Pass then a very steep decline coming into Deep Cove.

Wilmot Pass

Deep Cove

We stopped at a lookout to take in the breathtaking view of Deep Cove, the starting point of Doubtful Sound.


We came across the world's only Alpine Parrot, the Kea, at Wilmot Pass. They are very inquisitive and very mischievous.
