Milford Sound is the ideal place to go to for superb natural wonders. Spectacular waterfalls cascade down sheer rock faces that rise up more than a thousand meters from the still waters. Among them are Bowen Falls, Fairy Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Stirling Falls. All throughout the year, Milford Sound remains the wettest place in the country.
June is one of the colder months in the area with temperatures reaching just 10 degrees Celsius at the highest and 2 degrees at the lowest in daytime. It will get colder in July. Average rainfall decreases to a low of 440 mm with an average of 14 rainfall days.
Milford Sound can be reached by plane, bus or car via Queenstown, a distance of 307 kilometres away. Several important events are celebrated in Queenstown throughout June, including Queenstown Winter Festival, which features fireworks, street parades, music, food and wine events, mountain and ski slope activities, races and more.
Another important event celebrated in Queenstown is the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. During the Queen's Birthday weekend, the Michael Hill International Violin Competition is held at the Queenstown Memorial Hall – a much awaited competition featuring young musical talent.
