On 3 February 2020, New Zealand’s Milford Sound was hit with a large weather system which caused widespread flooding and significant damage to the Milford Road (the only access road to Milford Sound). While our Milford Sound cruises were back running after a few days, the damage to the road has impacted vehicle access to Milford Sound. It may take many weeks to repair the road, which will affect anyone planning on driving themselves to Milford Sound. Southern Discoveries will resume Milford Sound Coach & Cruise day trips on Friday 21 February, weather and road conditions dependent.
If you are planning to visit Milford Sound in February or March, find out how easy it is to get to Milford Sound and enjoy a cruise experience.
26/02/2020 Road Update: Road is open for tourist bus convoys only. Find out more information at NZTA Milford Road project.
