TravelPod Member ReviewsParklands Motel Te Anau
Fast and friendly check in. Our room was a big family room which would possibly accomodate upto 5 people. We had a well stocked kitchen ready for home cooked meals and the beds were super comfy. Heats worked well and the place was very clean. Te Anau is small and easy to get around. The Parkview Motel is only a block away from the main drag.

The sound is remote wilderness, the only other access is by boat from the sea ( a long ...

No homes are built here, or have ever been built here. The mountains haven't been farmed or forested for timber. Access is too difficult. But that means the landscape is primeval, almost certainly the same view that Captain Cook had when he sailed to New Zealand centuries ago. It would have been nice to be ...
... had to resign ourselves to the fact it was highly likely we'd be enduring another day admiring fog. Nevertheless we jumped aboard the bus and belted up for the drive. As we went the driver pointed out each of the mountains and features of the lakes and plants that went by. It wasn't far into the journey that we'd worked out he held an extraordinary knowledge of all things outdoors. It turns out he worked for the Department of Conservation and would spend three weeks at ...
... a cool sea breeze make it impossible not to be exhilarated and invigorated by this fiord. At the same time, the tranquility and serenity of this place made me feel calm and at peace. The kind of simple joy I felt when I was there is hard to describe.
After our cruise we drove to a nearby walking track that was recommended to us by another traveler. The walk started with a swing bridge which took us to a series of small waterfalls and fast flowing ...
