Te Anau Image



Te Anau is a small town on the shore of Lake Te Anau, in the Southland region of the South Island of New Zealand. It is the gateway to Fiordland and Fiordland National Park.

One of the attractions here in the Te Anau-Au Caves. A boat trip and guided tour into the Aurora Caves system by walking path and small boats within the cave itself where you will see thousands of glow worms. The caves are only accessible by boat. You'll spend approximately 35 minutes underground, where you will see some spectacular underground waterfalls, some high ceilings, and many other interesting things with a professional guide. Lake Te Anau or known as "The cave of swirling water" is the second-largest lake by surface area in New Zealand (after Lake Taupo) and the largest in the South Island.

The Te Anau Wildlife Centre provides the unique opportunity to view some of New Zealand's rarest endangered birds. Be sure to see the takahe, a large flightless bird with beautiful blue plumage and an enormous red beak. With only 225 takahe left in New Zealand, this is perhaps your only opportunity to see this majestic bird.

Tramp any of the many tracks located in the area. Te Anau isn't called the walking capital of the world for no reason. The major tracks that can be started from the surrounding area include the Kepler Track, Routeburn Track and Milford Track. Also, don't miss out on going to Milford Sound, taking a cruise, and enjoying the scenic wonderland.
