PhysSoc’s Twin Peaks Trip is all about giving students from UC, regardless of discipline, the chance to experience the magic of the Aoraki MacKenzie Dark Sky Reserve, south of Christchurch. Over three days, students get the chance to experience camping by Lake Tekapo, seeing the breath-taking night sky at Mt John Observatory (with a free hot chocolate from the cafe!), going on a short hike around our highest mountain, Mt Cook, and much more. A highlight from last year was the unforgettable gathering we had around a campfire under the night sky on the shore of Lake Tekapo. The trip is super popular for international students, as it’s a fantastic way to meet and have fun with some awesome new people, all in a environment that offers some of New Zealand’s best natural attractions.
