Allow plenty of time – the scenery and road conditions combined in particular to Milford Sound mean that we advise people allow plenty of time to drive within the region. While a destination may not seem far away in kilometres, the following drive times do not allow for narrow and winding roads, photo or pit stops, road works or domestics over the map reading.

Traffic lights installed at the Homer Tunnel over peak periods in summer months control traffic flows through the tunnel and can create delays of up to 20 minutes. Don’t leave it too late...leave early, avoid the rush!

Check out the road status for any delays or closures before travelling.
