All About Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park
Within New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park, lies the country’s most famous attraction, Milford Sound. Fiordland National Park is situated in the southwest section of New Zealand’s southern island and is quite isolated from civilization. In fact, the nearest town (Te Anu) is about 2 hours away, keeping this park much more pristine than others worldwide. Fiordland National Park gets its beauty and magnificent land formations due to its presence on top of the Alpine Fault, the boundary between the Pacific and Indo-Australian tectonic plates. Combine the uplifted earth with the many glaciers that have retreated, and you are left with this amazing landscape.
