Amazing space. Worth going to read about the mighty Aoraki. Staff super helpful and answered all our questions about weather ahead and how it would potentially affect our planned walks.

Really cool visitor centre/museum, all free, couldn't connect to the WiFi. Shame about the less than forthcoming staff.
