The MacKenzie Country area od the South Island is an area of unparalleled beauty even in a country of so many spots of immense beauty. The most well-known spot around here is the scenic Lake Tekapo; but there are so many lakes around here to explore. All of these places are pretty as the snow-covered Southern Alps is always there as the backdrop. An example is Lake McGregor; another is this little tree-covered island sitting in the striking blue glacial-fed waters of Lake Tekapo. One of the best vantage point to enjoy the panorama is around Mount John Observatory.
