The boutique village of Geraldine lies at the heart of the Waitaha/Canterbury region, at the foot of the wild Southern Alps, on the east coast of the Te Waipounamu/South Island. Geraldine is the gateway to the Lake Tekapo Starlight Reserve and Aoraki/Mt Cook as well as the lakes in the central Mackenzie Basin. It is ideally situated only an hour and half south of Ōtautahi/Christchurch City and International Airport and an equal drive time to Lake Tekapo.
