Mil­ford is not a theme park

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - Face­book users had plenty of opin­ions about the pro­posed Mil­ford tun­nel and rail when we pub­lished this story on­line last week. Here’s some of what you had to say. Erica O’Fla­herty: Nikole Ber­kett: Jake Huia Rang­inui: Sam De Reeper: Pam Hen­der­son:

Here we go again. In short, no. Peo­ple who choose to visit Mil­ford need to ad­just their ex­pec­ta­tions around the fact that th­ese ‘at­trac­tions’ are in re­mote lo­ca­tions that take time to get to, and for good rea­son. Per­haps they are con­fus­ing na­tional parks with theme parks.

Should’ve gone with the mono­rail.

How many peo­ple visit there ev­ery year? Plenty, I’m sure . . . If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Glenorchy has enough go­ing for it for peo­ple to spend a day there, why try rush peo­ple through.



Leave it as it is and en­joy the trip. The best part is the road to Mil­ford.

I say leave as is, you’re go­ing to have more prob­lems if you do some­thing like that, and it will spoil the beauty of the place. Limit the tourists.

Half the frig­ging pur­pose of go­ing to Mil­ford Sound is the DRIVE. As in the drive from Te Anau to Mil­ford. Any­one who thinks that is not case, ei­ther has not been there or has no ap­pre­ci­a­tion for Fiord­land Na­tional Park.

A train will be great. A smaller ver­sion of the Canadian Rock­ies (ex­cept if the weather is bad!)

OMG Has Len Brown been there too? Frown emoti­con

Push the road through to Jack­son’s and make the south a round trip. Moot Moot.


had the mono­rail.

No no no.
