Thanks guys, Its an amazing place, and only a 3.5hr flight from Melbourne too. I'd recommend it to anyone.
With so much to see we took to the skies, flying from Queenstown to Milford Sound. Most of the South West of the Island which we flew over is UNESCO World Heritage listed to protect its beauty for many years to come. The earth here is full of resources which I'm sure some billionaire mogul would have no hesitation in exploiting.
If you ever get the chance to do this, and the pilot offers you a co-pilot seat don't be like the guy before me who said no... best view in the plane.
We then hopped off the plane and onto a boat very similar to this one for a cruise on the sound, take note that the smallest mountain along the sound is 1300m, and this was not it! The boat pictured is not even a quarter of the way across the water.
We also did some helicopter spotting.
and a wider view, the waterfall is over 160m High, the helicopter is on the right near the bottom.
