Milford Road 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #1 of 20
Sometimes I wish I was a bus driver. It seems a strange wish, but if I met a genie, that would be on top of things to ask for. And the reason? It would mean I could drive the stunning Milford Road every day. Milford Road is located in the ... [more ]
Lake Marian 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #2 of 20
What I thought was a steam train slowly chugging towards me was actually an incredibly fat man running down the hill. His arms moved like pistons, and his face was so red that it looked as if someone had just shovelled a load of hot coal into his ... [more ]
Doubtful Sound 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #3 of 20
As the bus travelled deeper and deeper underground, I was glad that I wasn't claustrophobic. It felt like we were scraping the sides of the tunnel, and we would soon reach the centre of the Earth (where, if I remember rightly, there lives a tribe ... [more ]
The Chasm 5.0 stars
Natural Monument and Landmark - #4 of 20
Rocks come in all shapes and sizes. They can be as big as a mountain range, or as small as a grain of sand. They can be colourful, dull, smooth and as rough as a gravel road. But some of the strangest rocks I have ever seen were at the Chasm. ... [more ]
Routeburn Track 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #5 of 20
"How ya going?" said the muscular bearded man as he jogged past me, beads of sweat resplendent on his forehead. Normally I wouldn't think twice about someone out for a run, I go for the odd jog myself (and I really mean odd, because that's a ... [more ]
Mirror Lakes 5.0 stars
Park - #6 of 20
Milford Road runs between Te Anau and Milford Sound, in the South Island of New Zealand. It is a road that defies belief, passing from a stunning lake through farmland, temperate rainforest, a high mountain pass, and down into a glacially formed ... [more ]
Homer Tunnel 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #7 of 20
I could see ants below me, moving about on unknown errands, black against a background of pure, unadulterated white. At least they looked like ants. On closer inspection (and considering the fact I was halfway up a mountain), I realised they were ... [more ]
Monkey Creek 5.0 stars
Valley, Gorge - #8 of 20
As I drove along Milford Road, the alpine pass that leads from the small town of Te Anau to the paradise that is Milford Sound in the South Island of New Zealand, I became aware of a peculiar and somewhat unnerving phenomenom. It was a beacon of ... [more ]
Fiordland National Park and Mount Aspiring National Park 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #9 of 20
A tramp in New Zealand is not someone with smelly clothes and no money, but rather the word used to describe a multiday walk in the mountains, forests, and hills. Although you may end up looking like a tramp after 5 days in the New Zealand ... [more ]
Fiordland National Park 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #10 of 20
Fiordland National Park is 12,500 square kilometres of mountains and native bush that sits on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is part of the Wahipounamu World Heritage Site, and is an area of extreme beauty and peace. It is ... [more ]
Mackenzie Hut to Routeburn Falls Hut 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #11 of 20
The next day dawned with slivers of silver sunlight, so Pubdy and I packed and left early, leaving our new German friends to sleep off their hangover. The morning brought us the best walking yet, although the first section was extremely steep. ... [more ]
Kepler Challenge 5.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #12 of 20
It was snowing, and it shouldn't have been. The weather forecast hadn't mentioned snow. And it was meant to be summer. But cold white stuff was falling from the grey sky, and I my steps were slow and laboured through the thick covering of frozen ... [more ]
Kepler Track 5.0 stars
Stadium, Sports Arena - #13 of 20
I gazed out at the concrete sky with some trepidation, knowing full well that it was going to rain again. But at least it was better than the first time I had walked the Kepler Track - it snowed then. That had been two years before, and now I ... [more ]
Greenstone Bay 5.0 stars
Natural Monument and Landmark - #14 of 20
The water was cold. Freezing. Even my full wetsuit and cap didn't keep out the icy tightness that suddenly constricted my lungs. My breathing became short and sharp, which meant that the regulator I was breathing through wouldn't provide enough ... [more ]
Lake Mistletoe - Te Anau Downs 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #15 of 20
The Milford Road, which winds its way from Te Anau to Milford Sound, is possibly one of the best driving roads anywhere in the Universe. This stretch of tar and gravel in the heart of Fiordland in the South Island of New Zealand is a driver's ... [more ]
Ivan Wilson Park 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #16 of 20
If you are ever lucky enough to find yourself in Te Anau, a beautiful village on the shores of the idylic Lake Te Anau in the South Island of New Zealand, and you have a bit of time on your hands, then here is a lovely little park you can visit. ... [more ]
Eweburn - Lake Te Anau 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #17 of 20
My eyes glided over the green-tinged mountains, lightly dusting them like snow. Bright blue sky wistfully gave way to long white clouds, magically morphing from one breeze-blown shape to another, their cotton-wool cliches hardly out of place in ... [more ]
Milford Track - Fiordland National Park 5.0 stars
National Park, Nature Reserve - #18 of 20
The noises were coming from outside the hut, which is strange, because we were all in the hut, and there was no way anyone could be outside. And it sounded too big to be human anyway. It was a ghostly thumping and scraping that had awoken us ... [more ]
Gertrude Saddle 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #19 of 20
To be proven wrong is one thing, but to be proven wrong in such an awesome and breathtaking manner is quite another. These are the times when nature says - "You don't know me, and kindly don't act as though you do." These are the times we feel ... [more ]
Te Anau Glowworm Caves 2.0 stars
Natural Monument and Landmark - #20 of 20
The guide didn't really want to be there. His monotone commentary on the boat represented minimalistic tourism at its very best (or worst), as every five minutes or so he would drone a sentence that sounded like it pained him to share with us. I ... [more ]
