About us - Tekapo Tourism


Tekpo Tourism logo


Tekapo Tourism is a small, private company formed by husband and wife team, Greg and Bridgit Knowles, with the simple goal of promoting the Mackenzie Country to the rest of New Zealand and the world.
This site has been designed as an information website with the aim of containing large quantities of information as an alternative to hundreds of links toMackenzie related websites.

Having grown up in the Mackenzie, Greg loves the scenery and wonderful people of the Mackenzie Country. Originally a marine electronics engineer, Greg has travelled the world in that role, but continued to recognise the Mackenzie Country as one of the world's best kept scenic secrets.
Upon his return to New Zealand in 2001, Greg established this website to further advertise the fact.
Almost all of the images used on the site have been captured by Greg over the past 20 years.
The site is operated as a not-for-profit business and therefore a low cost service to those listed on the site.
An emphasis has been placed on making a visit to the website an informative, enjoyable and easy experience.

Bridgit's background is in the travel industry as a wholesale travel agent. During her time within the industry her long term goal was to bring visitors to New Zealand, rather than send New Zealanders overseas.
Tekapo Tourism is currently establishing itself to provide visitors to the Mackenzie and New Zealand, with information and a comprehensive choice of accommodation, transportation and activities.

Regretfully we are not a booking agent and are unable to provide bookings for accommodation or activities. We encourage visitors seeking accommodation information to contact the providers directly through the e-mail address for each provider listed on the accommodation pages.

Huge volumes of email enquiries forced us to remove our "contact" page and email addess several years ago.

As a private, not for profit, business, our images are not royalty free or available for free give away. This is a service often provided by tourism organisations with local government funding.

We hope that you enjoy our site and add it to your bookmarks/favourites to visit us regularly.
