If you possibly can, include the Milford Sound in your plans. We were thrilled by the peaks and the fiords! The drive from Te Anau was memorable in itself. Allow a half day from there to the Sound, so that you can stop and enjoy the sights along the way. Chartered buses are available, but we prefer to go on our own in most cases. http://www.fiordlandnz.com/media/networkhome.asp?UID=8

We stopped near the entrance to the tunnel through the mountain to the fiord and were met by
cheeky beggers--Kea parrots!
Beware! They will tear off rubber and metal from your car--even go for your shoelaces!
The vast beauty of the Milford Sound
