Quick trip into Hollyford Valley. A much nicer place than the Tourist fleecing pit that is Milford Sound. Stay at Gunn’s Camp if you want to stay somewhere different if you are over that way. I didn’t this time.
Drove down to the road end past the evocatively named Dead Horse Bog and stayed in a council metal dump down by the river. There were one or two sandflies, but nothing to worry a true adventurer. If you were from East Auckland or from Guilford, you might complain.
