Day 5 Travel to Te Anau

Te Anau
Today we made our way south to Te Anau. We went past the town and in to Milford Sound for a cruise on the Tasman Sea.

Hollyford Valley

We stopped at a few places in Fiordland being: Eglington Valley, Mirror Lakes, Hollyford Valley and The Chasm.

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.

After the cruise we made our way back to Te Anau. We had dinner at the Ranch which had meals from $16 up.
Mirror Lakes

We then enjoyed the local New Years Eve festivities by Lake Te Anau being local music, bonfire and fireworks.
