Lake Tekapo is pretty. You can travel different spots when you visit there, such as Church of Good Shepherd, The Sheep dog Memorial and Lake Tekapo Picnic Bench.There are quite a lot of people when we were there. A big Four Square is nearby so people can buy good and supply easily.

A must stop, if your in the South Island on holiday. Do the observatory tour, photos of the church and statue of Mackenzie dog. Great places to eat. Jacks cafe, blue lake eatery and the greedy cow.

There is very little else like sitting in the resort or on the edge of Lake Tekapo and enjoying the beauty of the glacial rock flour impregnated water. The colour exuded by this (and some other) lake is beyond accurate description. Such a peaceful setting is very hard to find. I have to say it is one of my favourite places in NZ to visit.

Beautiful lake with an amazing and vibrant colour. It has an incredible view of the mountains behind, and overall phenomenal scenery!

What a picturesque lake. Mountains reflecting in the waters of this beautiful lake. Sad that there is so much development going on but I guess everyone wants a piece of this perfect spot

Beautiful scenery and just a lovely place to visit. Plenty to do and see. The pools are great and some lovely walks.

The last time I saw this lake was 28 years ago (bit ashamed of this fact, as I'm a born & bred Kiwi!). It turned out to be my favourite spot then and nothing has changed! Such a lovely spot and the village is great too! Some great eating establishments and it all has such a lovely 'homely' feel to it! Can't wait to return!

Short stop on the way to Christchurch from Arrakis.

Lake was looking pristine and clear.

Church of the Good Shepherd is adjacent.

We love visiting Tekapo simply due to the view over the lake - in all its moods it delights. We recommend walking from the YHA hostel to Mt John to see the lake from that perspective & the next day, walk past the Church of Good Shepherd to the Tekapo Regional Park to walk along the shoreline to get another view.

Great mix of beautiful scenery and things to do. From ice skating and hot pools to star gazing and brunch hoping!
