Experience Te Anau with a charming holiday cottage
The town of Te Anau sits on the edge of the largest lake on New Zealand's South Island, and is often referred to as the gateway to Fiordland. Typical Te Anau accommodation is a charming, cosy cottage, where travellers can relax and enjoy views of the surrounding mountains as well as the deep blue Te Anau lake.
Local produce dominates Te Anau dining
The stunning Te Anau lake is home to world-class crayfish, which are heavily utilised in local cuisine. An additional, lesser-known local speciality is venison, due to the large population of deer in Fiordland National Park.
To enjoy this fresh and hearty cuisine at its best, visit the award-winning Redcliff Cafe, one of the area's top picks for fine dining. Its relaxed atmosphere and regular live music performances also make it a social hotspot.
Natural wonders of Te Anau
Te Anau is the closest town to Milford Sound, a picturesque inlet surrounded by towering, tree-covered mountains. You can tour the fiord by boat, and if you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the fur seals, dolphins and penguins that inhabit it. In the wider Fiordland National Park, you'll find majestic glaciers, scenic hiking trails, and even secluded and mysterious glow-worm caves.
Spring and Summer is when Te Anau comes to life. Many events centre around the lake, including the annual Te Anau swim, which allows the bravest visitors to experience the icy waters in a 2.4km challenge of endurance.
For those who would prefer a test of inventiveness, a highly competitive cardboard boat race is held in early January. Additionally, avid fishers flock to Te Anau from far and wide to compete in the Fishing Classic, held each year in October.
