Milford Sound

Milford Sound is a fiord located in the beautiful Fiordland region in the south-west of the South Island. It was named after Milford Haven in Wales and lies roughly 287km from Queenstown (about a three and a half hour drive) and 757km from Christchurch (nearly a nine hour drive). The road to Milford is one of the most beautiful alpine drives in the world.

The discovery of the Mackinnon Pass in 1888 helped open up Milford Sound’s natural beauty to visitors. The pass has since become part of The Milford Track famously dubbed "the finest walk in the world". more

Thousands of visitors visit Milford Sound every day making the fiord one of New Zealand's most visited and most famous tourist spots. Almost every Milford Sound visitor takes a boat tour to view the amazing scenery and wildlife (seals, penguins, dolphins and birds). The fiord is surrounded by lush rainforest and sheer rock faces including Mitre Peak, The Elephant and The Lion and has two permanent waterfalls, the Lady Bowen and Stirling Falls. After heavy rain – Milford Sound is the wettest inhabited place in New Zealand – hundreds of temporary waterfalls are created.

There is only limited accommodation at Milford Sound itself, most visitors stay in Te Anau or Queenstown.
