Township of Te Anau

Real Journeys location map

Te Anau

Te Anau is the gateway to the Fiordland National Park and the closest town to Milford Sound. Located on the shores of Lake Te Anau and bordering Fiordland National Park, Te Anau township is an attractive town that is a destination in its own right as well as a base for trampers and visitors to the fiords.  Two and a half hours drive from Queenstown, the Milford Road begins in the centre of Te Anau.

In Te Anau, you can visit the amazing Te Anau Glowworm Caves. Described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “one of the most unusual limestone cave experiences on the planet”, a visit to the Te Anau Glowworm Caves should be part of any visit to this wonderful region.   

For a taste of one of the world’s greatest walks, the Milford Track, spend a day with us on a guided day walk.

Te Anau is also the departure point for our day and overnight cruises in Milford Sound or Doubtful Sound.
