Te Anau is a resort town on Lake Te Anau. Te Anau is also the last stop before Milford Sound and accommodates all of the Sounds traffic. Te Anau is a busy place.

Te Anau is also the drop off town for those that walk the famous Milford Track.

Te Anau is also a young town that benefited with the construction of the Lake Manapouri power generation station. A number people involved with the construction settled in Te Anau.

The extraordinary scenic beauty has earned this region a reputation as a significant sightseeing and walking destination, and a 'Must See' for anyone traveling to New Zealand.

The hub of the Fiordland region is the attractive town of Te Anau. From here it is an easy 2- 2 & 1/2 hours drive to Milford Sound and 20 minutes by coach to Lake Manapouri and the start of a Doubtful Sound excursion. Te Anau has a range of activity options, fine restaurants, seven days a week shopping and can cater for all levels of accommodation.

Te Anau has a number of churches and also this glass walled chapel.

The War Memorial is very tasteful, given the town has only been in existence since the 1939-1945 War.

The Hotel/Tavern is a building of the 70ís era.

Te Anau is a very pretty place and definitely deserves more than just on night stop over.
