Te Anau took me by surprise . From what I had read its just a stopover before you head to Milford sound and that there isn't much there but I just loved it. Yes its only small but it has the prettiest lake and some really nice restaurants. We stayed 8 km's outside of Te Anau at a place called Sou'West cottages. The people who own can not do enough to help you so if you are ever looking for a spot to stay I would recommend this little gem.
After a rainy afternoon the sun decided to pop its head through the clouds t o give off this stunning light.
"Faith" is a gorgeous sailing boat that proudly calls Lake Te Anau home.
Faith, a 19.7m motor sailer built from teak, oak and mahogany, moored at the historic wharf in Lake Te Anau, Fiordland. This is one of the last vessels designed by the great Alfred Mylne of Glasgow, built in 1935.
