Stargaze from hot springs with Lake Tekapo vacation rentals
Ground rock suspended in the waters of Lake Tekapo is responsible for its incredible, milky turquoise shade. Overlooked by New Zealand's Southern Alps, the area lies within a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve, so the stars from far-flung galaxies dramatically illumine the sky at night.
Shepherds and stargazing
The Church of the Good Shepherd was built on the lake shore in 1935 for settler families and remains a place of worship today. Close by, the Sheepdog Monument honors the area's reliance upon the breed, which made grazing in this mountainous landscape feasible.
The bronze sculpture stands at the beginning of a hiking trail that runs all the way up Cowans Hill, a cool 1031 metres in height. It's worth the climb though, for the vast views that unfold at the top, and Mount John Observatory, where a small museum of interactive exhibits offers fascinating insights into other worlds.
Fly in Tekapo
Kids love Tekapo Springs TRIPPO Waterslide. The world's largest inflatable waterslide outside the United States is right here in Tekapo. Water gushes down the slide, shooting you and your family along its length.
You can also go tubing at Tekapo Springs Tube Park. Zoom down 150 metre slopes near your accommodation, year-round.
Discover other worlds
You've heard of the Northern Lights, but Lake Tekapo is in fact one of the best places on the planet from which to watch the southern hemisphere's version. The area is known for its absence of light pollution, and the landscape makes a spectacular stage for this natural light show. Colloquys of color dance across the night sky between April and September.
Why not take an Earth and Sky Gazing Tour? Guides point out the stars, galaxies and planets visible in the night sky. This astonishing astronomy experience opens up new vistas of the universe. Don't miss the Hot Springs, either. Five hot pools overlooking the lake are perfect for relaxation.
