Milford Sound Experience Full Day from Queenstown

675 reviews
Cruising Milford Sound is among New Zealand’s most spectacular activities, but the mountain scenery that lines the coast is just as gorgeous. Experience both on this full-day trip from Queenstown, traveling through the heart of Fiordland National Park, and then cruising all the way to the edge of the Tasman Sea. This excursion includes plenty of sightseeing stops throughout the day, along with a picnic lunch to enjoy onboard the cruise.

We were very impressed with this wildlife sanctuary in the heart of Queenstown. (It is right beside the Gondola) This sanctuary has been transformed from a dump to a native garden with habitats for the birds and other life. We did the private tour and were able to get up close to the birds with our guide telling us so much about them all. We were able to get close to an injured NZ falcon at feeding time and our guide let us into some of the birds housing which we wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise. We were able to experience the kaka taking a peanut out of our fingers ever so gently. To see the kiwi at feeding time was also great. Where ever possible many of these birds are rehabilitated and put back into the wild. It was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend it as a must do.

Wonderful view of kiwi going about their business and up close encounters with Kea and Tuatara. Important conservation and rehabilitation work done here. A family business right next to Gondolas

Just by the lower gondola station there is what looks like a corrugated iron shed. Going through this entrance is a revelation. It opens out into several hectares of nature reserve with many aviaries containing rare native birds. There are three kiwi house used for breeding kiwis for release. It take a while for your eyes to adjust but but after about 5 - 10 minutes you can easily see kiwis going about their business. There is a kea cage where you can go inside and get close to the keas, just watch your shoe laces. Our trip ended with a conservation demonstration in which several native bird were flown close to the audience. Close up of wood pigeon, often seen high up in trees but not this close. Also of a more pork usually heard rather than seen. Over the past thirty years the owner have cleared invasive scrub and weeds and replaced by native plants. This has encouraged local native birds to take up residence and these can be seen flitting about in the trees and bushes. We spent two contended hours here and could easily have enjoyed more.

They do a great job with the Kiwi here and it was really nice to be able to see them. Plenty of bird life to see while didn’t seem necessarily as marked on the site map which made it slightly confusing. Ticket price is probably fair around $30 (actually $39) but it is going to a great cause.

I was so impressed with this wildlife sanctuary in the middle of Queenstown. This beautiful setting has been transformed from a dump to native garden with perfect habitats for the birds and other life. We got up close to all the birds and learned so much about them all and about conservation in general. The highlight was witnessing the whole mating ritual from the male standing tall lifting his head and calling loudly to ...you know! Wow Also have never been so close to a NZ falcon. Beautiful. Suck a reasonable price too for an outstanding experience.
