Introducing Te Anau

Peaceful, lakeside Te Anau township is a good base for trekkers and visitors to Milford Sound, and an ideal place to recharge or get active in the surrounding landscapes.

To the east are the pastoral areas of central Southland, while west across Lake Te Anau lie the rugged forested mountains of Fiordland. The lake, NZ’s second-largest, was gouged out by a huge glacier and has several arms that penetrate into the mountainous forested western shore. Its deepest point is 417m, about twice the depth of Loch Ness.
