Te Anau rests on the shores of the beautiful lake of the same name with spectacular views of mountain peaks all around. It is the hub of the region and an excellent base from which to explore the Fjordland area. Te Anau has achieved the reputation of being the 'Sightseeing and Walking Capital of the World' having easy access to some of the most splendid Great Walks and scenery. Lake Te Anau is the second largest in New Zealand, attracting visitors with a wide variety of water sports. The town also has a wonderful resource centre with information on tramping and other excursions, as well as offering aerial sightseeing or organising trips to the main attractions in the area.
