I’ve spent the past few nights in Te Anau, a small town SW of Queenstown and the entrance to Fiordland National Park. I didn’t have very good wifi and didn’t take a ton of pictures but wanted to share what I had!
The Kepler Track, which is one of the “Great Walks” of NZ starts and ends in Te Anau. It’s a huge loop (~67km), so you can start/end either way you want. The nice thing about it being a loop is that I was able to walk in both directions.
In the Fiordland, it rains about 200 days/year, so everything is very green and covered in moss. While tourists (like me!) often complain about the rain, the nature down there needs it to survive. It was actually raining when I arrived, but was greeted by a rainbow!
Cute town and now I’m back to the craziness of Queenstown until my flight next week!
