Fiordlands National Park
Feb 13: Fiordland National Park Scenic Cruising
Established in 1952, Fiordland National Park is now over 1.2 million hectares in size, and encompasses mountain, lake, fiord and rainforest environments. The National Park is administered by the Department of Conservation. The variety of habitats in Fiordland support a diverse range of flora and fauna, with many developing in relative isolation leading to a high rate of endemism, or plants and animals that have evolved to be completely unique to this area.
In the morning we entered Dusky Sound and in the late afternoon, Milford Sound.
