SkyScape sits on a high country sheep station in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. SkyScape is set in total seculsion, surrounded by farmland and yet it is only 12km from Twizel. It's also a great location for an adventure in Mount Cook National Park.
SkyScape is owned and operated by a New Zealand farming family. Michael and Elaine Lindsay farm the station and their daughter Bridget and her husband Bevan have turned SkyScape from a concept into a reality.
Made predominantly of glass and designed to maximise the extraordinary views of the Mackenzie country by day and night. The cabin has a cedar outdoor bath tub, a king bed and 100% pure spring water sourced from deep under the Ben Ohau Range. Continental breakfast is included and dinner and farm tours are also available on request.
Enjoy the southern night sky from the comfort of your own bed! Gaze at the Southern Cross and Milky Way at night and take in the extraordinary views of the Mackenzie Country by day.
Mackenzie Country & Mount Cook
Mackenzie Country is dominated by stunning mountains and glacial lakes, making it a very isolated and sparsely populated area of New Zealand.
The domineering Mount Cook, part of the Southern Alps, is the highest mountain in New Zealand, reaching an astounding 3,754m above sea level.
One of very few towns in Mackenzie Country is Lake Tekapo. Lake Tekapo itself is the most stunning and surreal shade of turquoise due to the finely ground glacial rock-flour that is suspended in the water. The Lake is the ideal place to stop for the night – at this altitude the air is so pure and clear, the star-filled skies offer a magical stargazing experience.
