5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Seeing it was breathtaking, fresh country air and felt like I'm in a dream. Please stop here for a picnic if you have the chance! I know I did! :)

“Beautiful little stop on the way to Mt Cook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This was a great stop to stretch our legs and take in the views of such a beautiful lake. Stopped at the visitor centre which was closed at the time however the toilets were open. Nice place for a picnic.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The ever changing face of Lake Pukaki had us anticipating each day what it had to offer. With the backdrop of the snow-caped mountains it was a photographers delight.

What an incredible color, you have to see Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki if you're going to NZ, that's just an highlight!
