Twizel is a lovely southern alpine town in the MacKenzie Basin and is the gateway to Aoraki Mt Cook. It's a great place to break your journey if driving from Christchurch to Queenstown (or Wanaka).

It was originally built to service the Upper Waitaki Hydroelectricity scheme in the 1970s. Designed as a 'temporary' town residents fought to save it in the early 1980s.

It is now a wonderful place to stay while you explore the surrounding areas. Visit Lake Ruataniwha or one of the many local rivers and go fishing, rowing, sailing or water skiing. Try snow skiing at Ohau Skifield or Round Hill. Or enjoy tramping (hiking) or walking in this beautiful region.

With little light pollution enjoy the stars - visit the Lake Tekapo observatory.

Take a sightseeing flight over the Tasman Glacier or around Mt Cook and enjoy New Zealand's South Island Southern Alps. The scenery will take your breath away.

So what are you waiting for? Come and be awed in this beautiful part of New Zealand.
