Lake Tekapo sleeps in the heart of the Mackenzie Country, in New Zealand’s central South Island. Christchurch International airport is only a 3 hour drive away and New Zealand’s most popular tourist route, State Highway 8, passes through Lake Tekapo providing exquisite views of New Zealand as it should be viewed, ‘naturally’.
During summer, you will find yourself lost in the lupins field near the Church of the Good Shepsherd in front of lake Tekapo; during winter, the Church of the Good Shepsherd will be covered in stunning white snow. Close to the Church of the Good Shepsherd is the Bronze Sheepdog statue. After the night falls, the spectacular stars in the sky will start to wink at you. If you would like to learn more of them you could take a tour to the Mt John Observatory and experience it all.
