    Te Anau

    February 6 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We travelled to Te Anau, a gateway town for Milford Sound. It is a busy town in its own right mainly servicing the massive industry that is tours to the Sound. It is located on Lake Ta Anau which offers many other adventures too - trips across the lake to start walking tours in the mountains, flights to the glaciers etc etc
    Our day was spent travelling through the countryside amongst the mountains and plains. We stocked up at Cromwell which is a small town in the heart of fruit growing country and there were many wineries too as we passed through into Fjordland.
    We lunched on the side of Lake Wakatipu - Karen could not resist the urge to dip her feet in. The waters were crystal clear but very cold.
    On one pass we stopped to take a picture of Roaring Meg which is a white water section of the river passing by a hydro power station. We are passing Lake Gunn tomorrow on the Milford Highway
