Alas, they didn't go to the Eighth Wonder of the World, Milford Sound. But instead they headed in a same direction from Queenstown to Te Anau and took a cruise round Doubtful Sound, less famous than the 8th Wonder but bigger and less accessible. Along the cruise, there were many waterfalls like the one shown here. Constantly surrounded by mist and fog, this rain-forest houses an amazing variety of luscious green flora and fauna. They got glimpses of some wildlife like the bottlenose dolphins and fur seals. Well worth a day-trip if just for the escape into the serenity of the Fiordland.
