Te Anau - Milford Sound or Doubtful Sound?

Jump to last reply

OK, we've got our NZ trip all planned out and DH wants to see as much as possible in our limited (18 days) time so we're really motoring. I won't go into the details but at the tail end of our trip we will be going from Dunedin to Te Anau, a 4 hour plus drive, and will have just that afternoon and the following day to explore the area. So do we drive to Milford Sound and take an afternoon cruise of the Sound or do we go to Doubtful Sound instead? If you had to choose one or the other which would it be? And, just so you are aware, the end of our journey looks like this:
Dunedin - 2 nights (driving from Wanaka)
Te Anau - 2 nights
Queenstown - 1 night and then flying home at 2 pm the following day
