Situated on a slight hill along the lake and near the hutch of the Good Shepherd the state is easy to locate. For those who appreciate the work that dogs do, this is a great memorial.

Great little statue just near the church. You need to be quick to get a photo as non stop tourists sitting and posing for photos.

Walked past the statue and smiled. Nice tribute to the working dogs of New Zealand. Won't go out of our way to see the statue, but it's located near the very cute church that is a must see in Lake Tekapo.

Again, lovely but ruined by too many people. Trying to take photos is almost impossible unless you want a bunch of strangers in your shots. Disappointing
