  • Drove past this a few times on separate trips. Got out with 8 friends and had a blast running around the field and taking photos. Great photo op for those driving to Milford or the Divide at Te Anau.  more »
  • It's a large U-shaped valley created by the passing of the glacier, and it's not a valley, it's a plain. On the way to Milford Sound, the tour bus stops for a short time to take a picture. If the weather is nice, it will be cloudy and the scenery will be spectacular.

  • Stunning views of the Eglinton Valley. We stopped to do some pre-wedding photos. Heaps of space with a safe place to stop your car for photos!
  • A gorgeous stretch of land on the way to Milford Sound. It's heavily touristed, but that's to be expected. There are fields of wild lupine which are stunning, too.
