One of our most beautiful, vast and wild places

Fiordland National Park (established in 1952) has spectacular ice-carved fiords, lakes and valleys, rugged granite tops and pristine mountain to sea vistas.

Fiordland National Park is special not only in New Zealand but is also internationally recognised as part of Te Wāhipounamu - South West New Zealand World Heritage Area.

You can experience this region’s wild beauty through attractions such as the journey to Milford Sound along the Milford Road, the Great Walks (Kepler Track, Milford Track and Routeburn Track) and more.
