I am blessed not to be susceptible to seasickness, but I have traveled with friends who swear by SeaBands. They work on the principle of accupuncture, so they are drug-free. You can get them right over the counter at your local drug store.
But if you are concerned, and want something a bit stronger, you can always pay a visit to your doctor before you leave and have him prescribe something.
As for the seas between Milford Sound and Burnie, I wish I could help you ... but I haven't been fortunate enough to sail to Austrailia yet. But, one day ... yes, one day ...
Blue skies ...
