Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki to Oamaru and Kakanui

We drove around the outskirts of Lake Tekapo which is known as a highland lake sitting at 710 meters (2300 feet). From this spot you can see the astronomical observatory located at Mount John, which is on the opposite side of the lake to here, just north of the township and south of the small Lake Alexandrina. There is a DOC (Department of Conservation) campsite there on the shores of the lake that looked very tempting but it was too early in the day to stop yet.
