Great Sights - Christchurch
You'll be swept away by the landscape of the flat Canterbury Plains, from the massive hydro dams, to the blue waters of Lake Tekapo and the awe-inspiring backdrop of Mt Cook.
Declared a World Heritage park in 1986, Mt Cook National Park boasts over thirty 3,000 metre high peaks, and five of NZ's largest glaciers including the Tasman Glacier at 21km in length. At 3,751 metres, Mt Cook (Aoraki - in Maori means "cloud piercer") is the highest mountain peak in New Zealand.
As you travel south from Mt Cook, you will meander through the tawny tussock land of the Mackenzie Country. Sit back and take in the natural wonders and ever changing environment of this spectacular region.
Queenstown is an internationally recognised four seasons alpine and lake resort. With a wide variety of things to see and do, it is perfect for adventurers and leisure seekers alike.
