Right on the Milford Road so can just pull off and take some great photos and breathe in the scenery! If you don't like heights you may not like the steel floor that you can see down through!

Another great stopping point. We were stuck waiting for the road to open for an hour so had time to check this out while the traffic was al stopped. Views of the valley and information boards as well.

A lot of people stop here, but it is well worth it for a photo stop of even more epic mountains of the region

This is a beautiful view. One of the stops on the Milford Sound road I would recommend making. Nice view of the Hollyford Valley.

Visited on Friday 4th May. We were luck to be able to stop here and take in the great views of the mountains from the viewing area beside the main road into Milford Sound. Not to be missed.

Pops View Look Out is a wonderful overlook on the drive from Te Anau to Milford Sound. Be careful though since there are many tourists and cars at this particular juncture.

Views from here are spectacular and very much worth a stop on the journey to Milford Sound. We actually stopped on our return as well. Remember that the sun does affect the view and shadows

For such a popular spot, a little bigger parking area would have been good. When we were there the cars trying to park were disrupting the traffic on the road. But do stop here, the view is just photo worthy.

The boards here explaining the mountains around are super informative and a great little stop to break up the journey!

We stopped here for a view while driving back to Te Anau from Milford Sound. You can park by the roadside and enjoy the view here.
