- If you head into the Mackenzie Country, make sure you stop at Lake Tekapo and see the bronze Sheep Dog Statue, forever watching over the lake. It's dedicated to all of the back country working dogs that make such a big difference to the high country farmers when it comes to finding and moving stock in difficult terrain.
- Make the walk up to the Mt John's Observatory. Not only is their an amazing view (even with the natural eye), but there's a good café and of course you can make arrangements for a star viewing. Truly stunning.
- Not only can you ice skate on the Tekapo Springs outdoor rink during winter, but you can inline or roller skate on it in summer. Did you know that the mechanics of keeping the ice skating ring going provides enough heat to run the Thermal Park right next door? Choose from 3 pools, all with amazing views and sink back into the relaxing waters. Snow on the ground? No matter -the pools are nice and toasty.
