Tekapo Calling

We all stayed at Lake Tekapo for the weekend. Tekapo is located in the middle of the south island. Tekapo has recently applied to the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation to have its skies declared a World Heritage park. The area in and around the MacKenzie Country town is largely undeveloped and the view from its observatory boasts some of the clearest star-gazing skies in New Zealand. There is a really good cafe at the observatory too, but if you are thinking of visiting please be careful, the wind might literally blow you away.
