Safe place to leave rental car

While we are hiking the Milford track, we plan to leave our rental car in Te Anau. Can anyone recommend a safe place for it, pleae?

Contact the motel or wherever you are staying in Te Anau. Some of them offer a place to leave the car parked while you walk the track, especially if you are staying with them on return. That's what we did when we did the Milford.

There's a parking area at Te Anau Downs, where the boat to the start of the Milford Track departs. Availability could well be an issue though.

Barring that and/or leaving your car with your hotel as suggested by hikeandive, here's a link to secure parking/drop off in Te Anau.
