It's worth spending at least a few days in Te Anau and using it as a base to experience a few of the great walks... Routeburn, Milford and Kepler. Much nicer and more convenient than staying in Queenstown. Plenty of nice restaurants to choose from while you're in town too. Highly recommended.

As always a beautiful lake. For even more stunning views climb up to Luxmore Hut and stay overnight. You can walk along some of the lake on the east side.

This is a gorgeous lake surrounded by bush-clad mountains. There are cycling and walking trails around the shore, boat trips, kayaking, scenic flights, so many ways to enjoy this serene and beautiful location. With the town having all the conveniences and good accommodation, this is an underrated destination.

With a back drop of Fiordland National Park and stunning mountains all around this is truely a beautiful part of the world. Grab a water taxi to checkout one of the secluded beaches. Jump on a boat and retake a cruise or just have a walk or picnic beside it.
Maybe a refreshing dip or a kayak whatever you choose you can’t go wrong.

The boat cruise up beautiful lake Te Anau is followed by a great visit to the guided trip into the caves and the chase to see so many glow works. Really worth the trip and the money.

We stayed overnight on the edge of this lake, and I have covered this in a review of the Kingsgate Hotel, situated near the water's edge. I have attached photos of the sunset to that review.

Such a stunning lake, and viewed from on high whilst walking the Kepler track it was absolutely stunning. We did not venture out on the lake but would certainly look at using the water taxi on another occasion.
