Te Anau - View of Murchison Range

Te Anau - View of Murchison Range

In Maori, Te-Ana-au means Place of the Swirling Waters, and is thought to represent the amazing limestone formations carved out by swirling water in the caves on the western shore of Lake Te Anau. These caves are now visited by tourists who marvel at the glittering glow worms on the ceiling as well as the rock formations. By the 1800's the predominant tribe in the region was the Ngai Tahu.
