Not an absolute place to visit. Just a small statue by the lake and church of good shepherd. You can visit the church and the lakeside when you see this icon plus walk back to the village centre within 10 mins.

I really liked the story behind the statue. Wasn't as busy as the church so enjoyed it a bit more than that. But still just an average statue of a dog.

Very nice statue, took some beautiful pictures, but of course this is by Lake Tekapo so you have to enjoy that too. Awful hordes of Chinese tourists around. You wouldn't be missing that much if you missed this.

Stop and take a photo with the 🐶 dog. Take a walk to lake to take more photos. Plenty of wide open spaces capture special moments.
