From Christchurch drive to Lake Tekapo to get to Tekapo. You can drive up to Mt John Observatory or you can walk up.
For the walk: Once in Tekapo, follow the signs to the ice skating rink (alpine springs, spa, and winter park). Before you reach the ice skating rink, look on your left for a clearing and path in the forest.
You’ll see a Department of Conservation (DOC) sign for the Mt John Walkway and another information panel with history of the area, details of the walk, and a map. It takes 1.5h up.
