Introducing Te Anau
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.
