Do take note of the need to drive back at night after stargazing at Lake Tekapo is not recommended. Our stargazing tour with Sky and Earth ended at 2 am and we just drove only 3 min back to our accommodation which was still fine. We wouldn’t dare to drive 20-30 min at such late night though.
Thanks for the tip, we will probably hobo till the sunrise around Church of the Good Shepard to capture the star trails since we are all photographers

If your atm card and atm machine has the cirrus logo plus you had enabled overseas atm card use.

Got a quick question! If I prefer to use cash over CC, how much would I need on an average day? Excluding adventurous activities

3 meals a day per pax is $50 exclude msc drinks, food.
Transport depends on your car petrol consumption and how much you travel per day.

For those looking for accom, make sure ur room got aircon.

I tot it will be cooling coz now still end spring, so i went ahead and book a few accom that only have heater and no aircon. Big mistake. Room gets heated up by the sun during the day, and it is uncomfortably warm. And because the day is long, it only gets dark ard 8+pm. And take awhile for the room to be cool.
On days tt i got back early to cook dinner, i am sweating as i cook
