Mt John Family Tour — NZ holidays only

The easily-assessible summit of Mt. John is the home of the most southerly permanent optical observatory in the world, located in a spectacular setting with 360° views of mountains and Lake Tekapo. 
What better inspirational treat for your budding young astronomers (we welcome children and infants aged 7 and under on this tour) than a visit to the MOA2 — yes, that's New Zealand’s largest telescope, not the flightless bird! A fun, educational outing designed for families.
