We stopped at a few places in Fiordland being: Eglington Valley, Mirror Lakes, Hollyford Valley and The Chasm.
Milford Sounds is surrounded by extremely tall mountains. The water is both rain water and salt water and you are actually on the Tasman Sea whilst surrounded by the mountains.
We had an awesome sunny day with a bit of cloud cover and it was pretty perfect.
We then enjoyed the local New Years Eve festivities by Lake Te Anau being local music, bonfire and fireworks.
