Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a most beautiful drive and the best way to get to Milford Sound. We drove one way in the rain and saw so many amazing temporary waterfalls in addition to the permanent sights. We stayed overnight at the campsite in the rainforest and then returned next day in the sunshine with blue skies making our return views spectacular in a different way. Almost too many amazing photo ops. Take this road rather than a plane or helicopter for the full Milford experience. Better even than by coach tour as you can stop as often as you like whenever you choose.

    A brilliant walk ,well maintained and marked track .unlike so many walks this one delivers great vistas ,interesting alpine features without the need to go mountaineering or spend hours in forests.

    Were able to get right up close to the falls on our Milford Sound cruise with Milford Mariner. Also got a lovely packed lunch. A great trip overall. Definitely do it if you get a sunny day.

    Side trip off the main Milford highway up unsealed road. The walk is only about 10am s each way. You don’t get that close to falls and view partially blocked by vegetation below where the viewing platform is on opposite side of track.
    As per g m review further down I found underwhelming given there are so many amazing waterfalls around. If had done before rather than after Milford sound cruise may have rated higher. Would love to come outside of summer though when higher flows

    Its quite a long way to drive from the nearest town to Milford Sound, and most part of the road are single lane without much space for stop. It is nice to take a break to enjoy the open space at Monkey Creek, especially when we were travelling during Winter.

    It was very crowded when we were there, as there were many tour groups also making their stops there.

    The area had, had a long period of rain before our visit, which, made the falls even more impressive, a sight/site not to be missed.
