International Dark Sky Reserve

In June 2012, the region gained further international recognition as the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve – at 4300 sqkm, it is the world’s largest international park in the sky.

Far from city lights, and under strictly controlled local ordinances, the gold-rated dark sky reserve has almost light-pollution-free skies making for exceptional night sky viewing for the thousands of visitors who make the pilgrimage each year.

“We really loved our time at the High Country Holiday Lodge! The facilities were clean and never more than a few steps away and the staff was a delight to deal with. We wish we had more time to spend in Twizel to stay even longer with them! Thanks for everything!”
