    Milford Sound

    Was great, rain meant more waterfalls. But leave enough time to get there. It’s a long winding road, we went for coffees in Te Auna and had less then rwo hours to get there and made it with only ten minutes to spare.

    Gorgeous even in the Pouring Rain!!

    An amazing feast for the eyes even in the pouring rain. Super informative and fantastic fun when they dip the boat nose into the waterfall/s. Staff were lovely too. 😊
