Day three started with us hitting the road early to travel to Milford Sound. Getting to Milford you need to drive through Fiordland national park, it was an amazing drive. We stopped at so many places along the way to take pictures. Here are pictures from Fiordland
Our main goal of the day was to take a boat ride around Milford Sound. We had beautiful sunny weather, but it was a bit chilly on the Sound! I’ll let our pictures speak for themselves!
Fiordland Drive to Milford
On the way back out from Milford we stopped and hiked around at the Chasm and stopped at other lookout points.
After Milford we had a long journey to get back to Queenstown for the night. We stayed at the Queenstown Top 10 Holiday Park. It was a great location because after we parked for the night we were than a close walk to the hustle and bustle of town. The only down fall was that the park was completely packed!
Queenstown was a cute city. No matter the season you would have lots to do. Skiing in the winter would be fun and all of the outdoor adventure sports in the warmer months. The town center has tons of places to eat, drink and shop. I wish we had more time to explore and I wish we would have planned more time here.
The next day we were headed north to the West Coast of the South Island. We had stops along the way at some cute old mining towns of Arrow Town and Wanekea. We shopped in some cute stores, but unfortunately the weather was a little rainy so we didn’t stay outside too much.
Our next stop of the after noon was at…
The water under these bridges were suppose to be a cool blue color, but because of the rain that day they were not. Bummer, but the bridges we hiked over were pretty cool!
Our last stop of the day was along Wilson’s Creek. This was an old bridle track spanning the Chasm. Off the road and a walk back there was a large waterfall. Taylor made his way halfway back, but because of all the rain there was a lot of water and not worth the risk.
Our day concluded staying at Hasst Pass, There was not much to this town other than the RV park we stayed at. In total, we drove 132 km on day three and 392 km on day four.
Up next week, the West Coast of the South Island!
