Deep within Fiordland National Park lies New Zealand’s most stunning natural attraction: Milford Sound. Discover the beauty of this pristine scenic destination and find out why it should be on every traveller’s itinerary.

Milford Sound runs 15 kilometres inland from the Tasman Sea at Dale Point (also named after a location close to Milford Haven in Wales) - the mouth of the fiord - and is surrounded by sheer rock faces that rise 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) or more on either side. Among the peaks are The Elephant at 1,517 metres (4,977 ft), said to resemble an elephant's head,[6] and The Lion, 1,302 metres (4,272 ft), in the shape of a crouching lion.

 

Milford Sound sports two permanent waterfalls all year round, Lady Bowen Falls and Stirling Falls. After heavy rain however, many hundreds of temporary waterfalls can be seen running down the steep sided rock faces that line the fiord. They are fed by rain water drenched moss and will last a few days at most once the rain stops.
