QUEENSTOWN PLACES OF INTEREST

Fiordland National Park -
TThe Fiordland NP is one of the wildest areas in New Zealand and one of the most beautiful (and this in a country where the comparatives are superlatives). Even if you do not want to tour Fiordlands, be sure to plan a trip to Milford Sound.

Milford Sound - Milford Sound (a glacial fjord/fiord) is worth the cost of the trip to New Zealand. The Sound's scenery is spectacular - do not miss it!

Te Anau - The lake and town have the same name and this is a good place to start your tour of Fiordlands National Park. The Lake is beautiful but remote and a prime area for recreational activities. Consider it for a day trip from Queenstown.

Westland Tai Poutini National Park - Driving the west coast of the South Island is highly recommended. You will pass through rainforest and then find yourself exploring active glaciers. The scenery is spectacular. The driving can be challenging but is well worth the effort

Fox Glacier/Franz Joseph Glacier - During most of your trip on the South Island, Mt. Cook will be staring over your shoulder. Give in and visit the spectacular scenery of Mackenzie Country.
