IntroductionDirections on how to access the Milford Track.
The Milford Track starts on Lake Te Anau. From Te Anau, take a bus or private transport to Te Anau Downs (30 minutes), then a boat trip to Glade Wharf at the head of Lake Te Anau (1 hour 15 minutes).
The track finishes at Sandfly Point on Milford Sound. Take a boat trip (20 minutes) to Milford Sound/Piopiotahi, where there are bus services back to Te Anau and on to Queenstown.
Transport must be booked in advance. There is no vehicle or private access to the start/end of the track.
During the Great Walks season, full and partial transport packages are available from one of these independent operators. Contact the operator for further information.
