Getting Around

Driving around Fiordland and Southland is one of the great pleasures of a visit, but you can easily make do without a car: buses reach key destinations like Milford Sound and some remote locations (like Doubtful Sound) are only visitable on guided tour anyway. Car-free trampers can book seasonal track transport services. Exceptions include Te Waewae and Colac Bays and the Catlins, which aren't served by public transport.
