  • This is without a doubt THE must-see attraction in Te Anau. As soon as you enter through its mysterious gates, it is as though you have been transported to a new dimension where you begin to truly understand mother nature, seemingly for the first time. One cannot help but marvel at the wonder of the trout as they glide through the water, almost as if dancing... almost as if sending a subliminal message reminding us how fragile this Earth really is. I couldn't help but shed a tear as I beared witness to this glorious display of beauty and of bravery. It certainly was a sight to behold, and a moment im sure will stay with me for life.
  • Want to see Trout Fish? Go visit Te Anau Trout Observatory, NZ$2.00 per entry. Just use coin machine to enter. No staff or any other facilities. Just go down the stairs from the road frontage and come out from the other end. There are large trout fish in the tank. If you are lucky you may see some Eels. Worth a visit if you have time.
