Our family of 5 (3 kids, 13 10 and 8) are on the South Island from 3-13 Oct.
I currently have us with 1 night in Te Anau and 1 night at Milford Sound to do a cruise on Days 6 and 7. But I'm having second thoughts about this whole leg and not doing Milford Sound. I'm thinking of adding an extra night to Queenstown (to make it 4 nights) and Wanaka (to make it 2 nights) instead. That would save 2 days driving and give us time to do a couple of half day walks.
Is Milford Sound really a must see? We are locked into a flight out of Queenstown on 13Oct.
