Attractive and progressive, Te Anau is renowned as the "sightseeing and walking capital of the world".
Fiordland National Park is one of the few areas in the world that has attained World Heritage status.

Visitors to Te Anau can choose from a wide range of attractions including scenic boat cruises, scenic flights, sea kayaking, diving, fishing, coach tours, golf, four wheel driving, hunting and more.
Don’t forget to check out the Te Anau Glow Worm Caves - a rare example of a living cave that is still under formation.

Te Anau is also in the hub of the great southern walking tracks, a great way to escape everyday life and head for a land of rugged beauty and splendour.
The tracks offer a sense of freedom and inspiration that is seldom found elsewhere in the world.
The popular Milford Track is accessed from Lake Te Anau and the Kepler Track is within walking distance of the town centre.

Lake Te Anau sprawls at the feet of high rugged mountains, and during the summer the hot dry weather encourages water skiing, swimming, fishing and kayaking on the lake. During the winter, days are crisp and clear with frosty mornings and sunny days.

Te Anau is well known for its fine restaurants and has 7 days a week shopping. If you are looking for a place to stay, Te Anau has dozens of hotels, motels, backpackers, homestays and camping grounds right through the whole accommodation range.

Te Anau’s Wildlife Park is only 10 minutes walking distance from the Department of Conservation Visitor Centre on the Lakefront. You can view the rediscovered takahe (Notornis porphyrio) a flightless alpine bird, along with other birds like the kaka, tui, kea, parakeet.

A wide range of services and facilities also ensure that the needs of every traveller are catered for.
