“A cherished corner of the world where mountains and valleys compete with each for room…” –The author of the book “Mountains of Water – The Story of Fiordland National Park” perfectly captures the essence of this majestic nature park.
Spanning over 1.2 million hectares, it is filled with all sorts of environmental gifts–mountains, lakes, rain forests, wildlife, and more. It is home to a wide array of flora and fauna, and has a high rate of endemism. This means that some of the plant species here are unique to this place. Since its foundation in 1952, it has been managed and operated by the Department of Conservation.
