For the day

So far, Friends, our trip has been lovely. We are now in Kaiteriteri after 3 lovely days in Auckland. We're sitting on our deck overlooking the water and looking forward to our sailing trip tomorrow! I realize I didn't plan anything for Te Anau. We leave Queenstown in the morning and will stay at the Aden Motel - leave for Milford Sound tour the next day. Should we do the glow worm tour or just wander the town?

Thanks for your thoughts!

If you like slightly oddball type things, go to the trout observatory but check out the google reviews first. They are brilliant 🤣

my favourite things to do in te anau are the bird sanctuary and the amazing ata whenua shadowlands at the fiordland cinema. totally recommend.

if you havent seen glow worms then definitely do the trip. there are glow worms at the back of the kaiteriteri camp at the start of the withells walk - just ask at the office. enjoy kaiteriteri and the stunning abel tasman.

Oh the bird sanctuary sounds awesome. We had a nice sail today but my poor husbands gout is flaring and he is barely hobbling. We are heading to the medical center in the morning.
