New Zealand's most famous walk, the Milford Track has been thrilling hikers for more than 150 years.

The 53.5km track starts at Glade Wharf (at the head of Lake Te Anau, access from Te Anau Downs, 27km from Te Anau). It finishes at Sandfly Point in Milford Sound. The track may only be walked in one direction and takes 4 days to complete, with each night spent at a pre-booked hut.

As this pictures attest, the Milford Track will show you pristine lakes, sky-scraping mountain peaks and enormous valley views; and it will take you to feel the misty breath of Sutherland Falls, the tallest waterfall in New Zealand.

On a sunny day it is postcard perfect but some walkers say that only when it rains, and torrents of water cascade down the steep mountainsides, have you truly experienced the magic of the Milford Track.
