We were looking for info and bookings for Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound plus accommodation in both Invercargill and Te Anau. The lass who served us was so helpful and competent and sorted us out no problems. Took the payment on the spit and that was us organised for the next three days

Must go and see Henry the 111year old Teutara and female ones. There is a great documentary to listen to. There was an Art exhibition and a 1st world war exhibition set up for the up and coming ANZAC day celebrations.

compact I-site. Seems to have everything one needs though. Just like other I-sites. Also has a cafe. I did not visit the cafe. And, of course, it has the free museum
