T

he Te Anau Glowworm Caves are famous for their beautiful water-formed rock sculptures and formations, rushing white water and whirlpools and their magical glowworms, which visitors can float under in a small boat. Tours start from the Real Journeys Visitor Centre on the lake front.

THE MILFORD ROAD TWISTS ITS WAY THROUGH DIVERSE SCENERY AND IF YOU’RE DOING THE DRIVING YOURSELF, BE AWARE THE MILFORD ROAD DOES REQUIRE CAUTION AND SHOULDN’T BE RUSHED.

If you’re a bird lover, the Te Anau Bird Sanctuary, on the shores of Lake Te Anau, will give you a chance to see rare birds up close. The centre is home to many native bird species; among them the takahe, kea, kaka, weka and parakeets.
