Nature and Parks

Sometimes, especially when you are stressed, the best gift you can give your body is a stroll around the park to connect with nature. There is nothing as satisfying as feeling the gentle breeze of trees swaying and birds chirping above you. That is why Te Anau and Fiordland remain top of the list among places to visit when in New Zealand. The popular parks to check out while in Te Anau and Fiordland are:

Fiordland National Park

This park sits among the World Heritage sites that have been identified by UNESCO. You can either choose to drive through the vast park and experience the landscape and wildlife that make up the park. The other option is to take a walk along the trails that have been set aside for hikers who want to experience the park on foot. The fact that Fiordland national park is in the global map as a heritage site means the parks are protected, so it is practically impossible to get planning permission for property development for people who like to grab land.

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is one of the places where you can go to get in touch with your inner self. There are boat tours available to take people for a cruise where they sail across to the Tasman sea and watch as dolphins and penguins play. The cruise also allows for a glimpse of the mountains and glaciers that surround the area.

Te Anau Bird Sanctuary

If you love birds, then the Te Anau bird sanctuary will give you a glimpse of some of the rare birds available in New Zealand. This is a place to visit not just for the beauty of it, but also to learn more about nature. It is also a fun place to go to if you have children, as they enjoy the different species of eagles, owls, and other colourful birds.

Ivan Wilson Park

Ivan Wilson Park is a perfect destination for a quiet picnic. It has a lakefront view that provides a beautiful silent environment. Other parts of the park have birds, wildlife, fungi and other interesting features. There is enough space within the park for people with vehicles to park and take in nature. It can also be a good place to go for a walk.

Doubtful Sounds

Doubtful Sounds is one of New Zealand’s most popular tourist destination. A cruise around this Fjord offers fascinating views. From views of mountains to sparkling waters that reflect the greenery that surround it; the Doubtful sound is an absolutely perfect destination either for solitary trips or with a group of friends who want to create unforgettable memories by taking one of the world’s most coveted trips.
