The Church Of the Good Shepard

The Church Of the Good Shepard is undoubtedly one of the New Zealand’s most famous Landmarks. It is perched on the shores of the Picturesque Lake Tekapo and is a 30-minute drive north of Twizel.

Built as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie region, the Church has been home to thousands of weddings and has seen more than its fair share of visitors to its grounds. The foundation stone was laid by HRH the Duke of Gloucester, on January 15 1935. The builders of the Church were instructed that the site was to be left undisturbed and that even the matagouri bushes surrounding the building were to remain.

“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!”
