Location: Milford Sound, New Zealand

MapMagical Milford

We hired a car from Queenstown for a 2 day trip to Milford Sound. We shared the 5 hour drive so we were both able to enjoy the amazing scenery, stopping off at different viewpoints along the way. When we arrived we checked into the hostel and then took a drive down the road to the Sound. This place looked spectactular and were both really looking forward to our cruise on the sound the following day. We woke up the following morning, the weather was awful. It was very cloudy and very wet, a total contrast to yesterday's glorious sunshine. By the time we had boarded the boat the rain had stopped, but still looking very dull. The 2 hour cruise took us to many amazing waterfalls which were made even more spectacular due the recent rainfall. We also got to see some Fur Seals, it was good to see them in their natural habitat. It was definately worth the long journey to this beautiful place which is regarded by many people as the 8th Wonder of the World.
