Though the town of Te Anau serves as a gateway to the lush Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound, you’ll certainly find many things to do in the quaint town. Sitting beside a picturesque lake and surrounded by dramatic landscapes, it’s baffling as to why Te Anau is not swarmed with tourism. The town offers visitors a range of restaurants with tasty seafood. Imagine venison, lobster, and crawfish—you name it; they’ll serve some of the freshest. There is also Te Anau Glowworm Caves, a breathtaking system of caves you can explore via boat. There, glowworms light up stalagmites like stars in the night sky. Before heading off to the natural wonders of Fiordland and Milford Sound, be sure to experience the hearty town of Te Anau; you won’t regret it.
