Dunstan Downs is your gateway to lake Tekapo

“Your warmth and hospitality are extraordinary.”-- Howard and Barbara Katz, Maryland, USA

If you want to escape to one of New Zealand’s premier destinations, then Dunstan Downs is your gateway to Lake Tekapo. It is 90kms away from the farmstay homestead.

Lake Tekapo is one of Mackenzie country’s main attractions. It is a hydro Lake generating electricity for New Zealand. It is also the country’s highest large lake 710m above sea level.

There are various activities that travellers and locals enjoy in the region. You can enjoy the spectacular view in an air safari around Aoraki and Mt Cook National Park.

You will also be astounded when stargazing in the Astronomy Observatory on the summit of Mount John, just above Lake Tekapo. Other attractions in the area include horse trekking and visits to Tekapo Springs and Winter Park.

If you want a place to stay after an exciting day in Tekapo, then top your experience with a night or two (or three!) at Dunstan Downs.
