Tekapo

Lake Tekapo is in the heart of the McKenzie Country, not far from Mt Cook.

Lake Tekapo is in the centre of New Zealand's beautiful South Island and is fed by the Godley River.

Lake Tekapo looks beautiful in summer surround by lupins, although adding beautiful colour they are now considered a pest plant as they encroach on native species. Beautiful open grassland country makes up the MacKenzie Country with native beech forest and alpine plants heading up to the alpine areas.

Enjoy skiing in the winter, take a scenic flight and soar over the Southern Alps, go bird watching, horse or bike riding, or try trout and salmon fishing. And for star watching you can't beat the clarity of these night skies, so make sure you visit the observatory at Mt John or just lie back somewhere and enjoy gazing at the stars.

You might also visit Mt John to enjoy the Alpine Springs Hot Pools or go ice-skating.

The beautiful stone Church of the Good Shepherd is also found on Lake Tekapo shores. It was the first church in the Mackenzie Basin and provides beautiful views of the lake and mountains from the pews over the altar.

Near the church is a bronze statue, sculptured to recognise the contribution that sheep dogs make to the area. This beautiful bronze New Zealand Collie was commissioned by the Mackenzie Country residents amd made by Innes Elliott in recognition of the indispensable role of the sheepdog in their livelihoods.

So come for a while, there's so much to do, you can even take a day trip to Mt Cook.
