About Te Anau

Te Anau is a small town located on the shores of Lake Te Anau approximately 170km southwest of Queenstown. It's known as the gateway to Milford Sound and the Fiordland National Park. 

Lake Te Anau is the largest lake in the South Island and second only to Lake Taupo. During the summer months the lake is a great place for water skiing, swimming, fishing and kayaking. Located across the lake is an underground glowworm grotto with many local companies offering guided cave and boat tours. 

Take to the skies for a few hours to experience Fiordland by air, you won't regret it! Several local companies specialise in heli-flight experiences where mountain landing, waterfall chasing and wildlife spotting are all part of the fun! It can be an expensive trip but it's definitely an exhilarating one, you'll create lifelong, unforgettable memories.

Te Anau also hosts many cafes and restaurants serving fabulous local food. InterCity, GreatSights, Gray Line and AweomeNZ all offer day tours to Milford Sound.
