Ultimate Queenstown

Aoraki Mt Cook & Lake Tekapo

The centre of the South Island boasts some of New Zealand's most iconic views. Standing tall at New Zealand's highest peak is Aoraki Mount Cook and a quaint little church on the banks of Lake Tekapo holds the title as the most photographed spot in NZ. Often this region passes people by on the road trip between Queenstown and Christchurch, but explore below and you'll see why it is worth stopping and spending some time soaking in the hot pools after a spot of skiing or biking and gazing at the stars above at the world's largest International Dark Sky Reserve.
