Mirror Lakes offers a good place to stretch your legs during the drive to Milford Sound.

Small lakes provide outstanding reflective views of the Earl Mountains. Water fowl and wetland plants can be seen against a backdrop of beech forest.

This is an easy walk suited to all ages and accessible to wheelchairs.

Getting there

This walk begins from the Milford Road, Fiordland, about 62 km north from Te Anau.

Car parking and the walkway is well marked on the roadside.
