LAKE TEKAPO → CHRISTCHURCH, via SH 8, SH 79, & SH 1
Drive from Lake Tekapo to Fairlie via state highway 8, then from Fairlie to Geraldine via state highway 79, then from Geraldine to Ashburton via state highway 79 and state highway 1, then from Ashburton to Christchurch (final destination) via state highway 1. From Christchurch airport you can fly back to your country. End of trip.
When you’re driving from Geraldine to Ashburton, before you reach Ashburton you will find farmers corner/ highway one restaurant. In that place you can eat at the restaurant, or buy somethings in the shop, or see many flowers & alpaca animals on the outside of the building.
In the shop, they sell any kind of things, but my favorites are the animal toys. The animal toys are so great & cute (penguin, sheep, alpaca, etc). There is a penguin toy that can be transformed into a pillow. And there is a sheep toy that can be transformed into a pillow.
These photos are taken at farmers corners/highway one restaurant, on december (summer):
