Tekapo Springs is a finalist in the South Canterbury “Tell a Friend” campaign. The promotion encouraged residents of South Canterbury to promote why it is such a great place to live, work and play. The competition was fierce and a panel of judges narrowed the constants down to the top 6. Each finalist has had a professional video made that promotes their slice of heaven.

Follow the journey of Luca an Italian tourist exploring Lake Tekapo. In this beautiful alpine village in the heart of the South Island, Luca enjoys the stunning scenery, wonderful attractions and the hospitality of the locals. What he wasn’t prepared for was the uninvited but special friendship he would establish with Lulu…….. confirming for Luca, South Canterbury is a great place to make friends!
Luca & Lulu’s adventures include the hot pools and day spa at the relaxing Tekapo Springs, star gazing at Earth & Sky Mt John Observatory “Window to the Universe”, a nights stay at the stylish Lake Tekapo Lodge and a glacial scenic flight at Air Safaris.

And for some strange reason stacking rocks must be a new ‘thing’
Well what a great turn out to the fete yesterday, even though the weather looked foreboding and did finally start raining about 15:00. A day of fun was had by both stall holders, local and from afar, as well as the event goers. Award winning wine, fantastic food, fun for the kids, great artwork including lots of beautiful photography.
Just a quick reminder for all those in the region next week, we have the Lake Tekapo NZ Made Fete happening.

Lake Tekapo Fete, 2013
Unfortunately due to the work being done on the leak in the canal the lake level is to high to hold the fishing competition this year.
So the fish will just have to get a bit bigger (this time!)
See you next year and we’ll have another go at it.
