Gateway to the Mackenzie

For travellers heading to Aoraki Mt Cook and the spectacular Mackenzie country, Timaru is a great place to start or finish your journey.
                            

The 7,300 square kilometre Mackenzie region is known for the country’s highest mountains, most pristine night skies, extraordinary turquoise blue lakes and having more rabbits than people.

The region’s five main centres are Mt Cook (on the westernmost edge at the base of the Southern Alps), Twizel, Omarama, Lake Tekapo and Fairlie.
