  • Great for a picnic, rest-stop from driving, or for spending the day relaxing by. A quiet and peaceful place..  more »
  • This is a lovely and picturesque lake, we stopped over by on our way to Te Anau. While there wasn't much to do around the lake in the late afternoon, it was still a great place for some photo-ops.  more »

After that, running a little and stop at the shores of this Lake, shooting time. However, it didn't seem enough to shoot beautiful sea. Greatly impressed and Lake tekapo.
