Fiordland Cinema

Te Anau


Sit in your large, plush seat, order a cheese-board and enjoy a glass of wine as you rise up from the sea to 8,000ft and look down over some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes on earth. Mysterious, evocative, exhilarating and utterly, utterly spectacular, Ata Whenua (Shadowlands) takes you on a journey through extremes of season, climate and terrain, all filmed within the nearby Fiordland World Heritage National Park. This is truly unforgettable stuff, so good in fact that it’s probably the first film ever to have its own cinema built just for its viewing.

  • Prices: $10 adult, $5 child for Ata Whenua. Feature movies prices vary.

Southland Highlights

  • Cross over to complete wilderness in Doubtful Sound. Skim over its still waters in a kayak among bottle-nosed and dusky dolphins, Fiordland penguins and furry seals.
  • Stock up on mint cake, get yourself a compass, buckle up your tramping boots and head out on the 3 - 4-day walking extravaganza that is the world-famous Milford Track. Alternately, for another walk in the Fiordland National Park that's big on scenery yet low(er) on crowds, try the 4-day Kepler Track from Te Anau.
