Seven meters of rain a year!

Fiordland, New Zealand’s largest national park, in the south west corner of the south island is one of the highest rainfall areas in the world.

As much as 8,000 mm (average of around 7,000 mm) of rain will fall in a year and rain will fall on more than 200 days of the year.
