Milford Sound comes out on top of ‘7 Wonders of NZ’ list
Milford Sound has been placed at the top of Torpedo7’s ‘7 Wonders of New Zealand’ list. The outdoor adventure company asked its Facebook followers to vote for the country’s top ‘wonders’ after research showed the majority of Kiwis (81%) they had not seen enough of New Zealand.
‘Milford Sound, Abel Tasman National Park, Mount Cook, Mount Ruapehu and Tongariro National Park are all considered as some of the best places to visit in the world,’ says Simon West, CEO of Torpedo7. ‘Yet we know from the research there are still plenty of Kiwis that are yet to visit these incredible locations.’
The research showed that one in three people (35%) are yet to visit Milford Sound, a number which rises to one in two (47%) among 18-25 year-olds. Despite the number of people who have never seen it, 77% considered it a Wonder of New Zealand. Results were similar for Abel Tasman National Park. Thirty four per cent of people had never seen it yet more than half (54%) consider it a wonder.
Mount Ruapehu was placed at number two followed by Redwoods Rotorua, Lake Tekapo, Aoraki Mount Cook, Abel Tasman National Park and Mount Taranaki. Other notable mentions were Waitomo Glow Caves, Franz Joseph Glacier, Cardrona Alpine Resort Cardona Valley and The Remarkables, Queenstown.
