Mt Cook MacKenzie Country Free Visitor Attractions
Mt Cook and the MacKenzie Country are located to the east of the Southern Alps, in New Zealand's South Island. Mount Cook National Park was gazetted in October 1953 and was established to protect the area's landscape, flora and fauna. At 3,754 metres, Mt Cook (Aoraki) is New Zealand's highest mountain. Tekapo and Twizel, the two closest towns to Mt Cook, are also popular tourist destinations and holiday hot spots.
There are several walks around the village that provide views of Aoraki/Mount Cook and the surrounding native alpine bush and area. The climate in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park and surrounding areas can be very changeable, and it is always wise to prepare yourself for bad weather, no matter what the weather forecast predicts.
