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.
