The Church of the Good Shepherd was built to the glory of God as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie Country. "Somehow the setting and the church combine to speak of God to those who enter and pause in the midst of their busy lives." - Peter Hurricks NO PHOTOS INSIDE Please do not use cameras, cellphones or tablets inside the church so that others may enjoy as is a place of prayer and reflection. PLEASE REMOVE YOUR WASTE There are no toilet or rubbish collection facilities in the area around the church so we kindly ask that visitors remove their waste and respect the natural environment around the church. « less

In June 2012 the Aoraki Mackenzie region, encompassing Mount Cook Village, was approved as one of only a few International Dark Sky Reserves (IDSR) worldwide. It is the worlds largest IDSR, and has achieved a gold rating, meaning the darkness of our night skies is almost unbeatable! Begin with an introduction and orientation in the comfort of our Theatre Planetarium using a special live Digital Sky presentation highlighting unique features in our southern sky. Our informative astronomy guides then take you on a short drive (transport provided) to our outdoor stargazing site. Use state-of-the-art telescopes, high powered binoculars and the naked eye to put your newly acquired knowledge into practise, identifying and exploring different elements of the spectacular southern sky. « less
