T is for Tekapo . . . or turquoise waters.
- Lake Tekapo is one of three lakes in the Mackenzie basin on the South Island.
- It’s about halfway between the Christchurch and Queenstown Airports, making it an ideal stop to break up the six hour drive, or a destination on its own.
- Water from the lake is used in the generation of hydroelectricity. More information on this can be found here.
