My favourite place in New Zealand

Te Anau

Southland/Fiordland

Hayley , 13

Te Anau is my favourite place in New Zealand. Kids scream with joy, sausages sizzling on the BBQ, sun heating my skin, cold water tingles me when I touch it. The waves lap onto the beach. Friends, family all gather around the fire on the beach. Water splashes my face as I take off skiing and biscuiting. The birds tweet and chirp in the forest behind me. Night time in Te Anau is the most amazing picture if it’s a nice night. The clouds look like cotton candy, with the sky a bright red and a light pink. On these nights my family and I sit there and look out onto the flat lake and embrace it.
