    As one of your photos above already explains: the foreshore walkway to the Stirling Falls is not accessible any more.

    Cascade Creek is mentioned as the best campsite on the way from Te Anau to Milford. I’d just like to mention the rather lovely forest walk amongst some amazing specimens of Red Beech. Nice way to wind down from other activities.

    are you saying the only thing worth doing is the drive and foreshore walkway? is the Milford Track just a tourist trap? or worth spending 5 days and staying in the huts while walking the track?
