Lake Alexandrina & Lake Tekapo
Lake Tekapo is the largest of the three lakes in McKenzie Basin. It’s BIG blue sky country, where rolling plains of tussock smudge into the eastern horizon, and towards the West the Southern Alps bisect the landscape.

Geoff and I got to hide away for the weekend at a fishing crib on the edge of Lake Alexandrina, about 15 minutes drive from Tekapo town centre. We set ourselves a challenge to explore the area and find the best view.
