The park is lined with lush temperate rain forest, a form of tea trees, with many native birds behind the beaches. You can hop onboard a sea taxi and head off on one of the beaches to spend the day, swimming and exploring if that sounds like too much of a commitment.
Queenstown has enough for action-adventure and scenery. This stunning, lake-side city is fitted for the queen and is surrounded by snow-capped mountains. It is the home of bungee jumping that New Zealander AJ Hackett commercialized for the first time, as well as jet boating that was also created in NZ.

The Hermitage is a big hotel and the main place to stay is across this alpine beautiful land on many scenic walks and guided tours. Walks vary for accomplished mountain climbers from a two-hour walk to challenging paths.

This national park is part of the World Heritage South Westland and is known for the mountains, Fox and Franz Josef, and its two largest glaciers.

A former beech forest with steep cliffs and mountains supports lowlands parts of the Park. The view of glaciers from a rain forest is contradictory, but the region of steepness and high rainfall explains this phenomenon.
