If you need a stop over between Te Anau and Milford Sound, this is the place for you. Very nice cabins and the best secret waterfall ever, sorry PC, had to tell someone about it. Just ask PC for directions to the falls. Highly recommend for a night or two without TV and Internet connection...ahhh the serenity!!

This small facility is located in a fantastic valley, surrounded by tall forested mountains. The room was very clean, had nice cooking and bathroom facilities with the room. We rented one of their 3 stand alone cabins. The host was very helpful and gave us good information about trails and sights in the area.

The information panels explain the dramatic effect of avalanches in this area and you can see the actual results. You also get information on local animals and should see some of the only Alpine Parrots in existence....do not feed them no matter how cute they look as our food is not good for them and turns them into scrounges.

Knobs Flats has really lovely self-contained accommodation at a very fair price.

We were a bit nervous about staying with our 16 month old in a cabin but the accommodation was brilliant. Extremely comfy bed and the cabin was really spacious. The travel cot was in the room when we arrived and there was everything you could need there for preparing breakfast/small meals. Gorgeous views even though it was heavy rain whilst...

We booked a tent site and were surprised at how lovely this little campground was. The camp kitchen was great - user of gas stoves, cookware and crockery, and dishwashing supplies, all included in the price. A fridge and freezer was also available. Owner was lovely, knowledgeable about local walks and the road (if driving into Milford Sound), and happily...
