To the right of the Good Shepherd church is the memorial statue of a Border Collie farm dog. I absolutely loved the dedication given to these brilliant dogs.

How great to see this beautiful statue dedicated to all those hardworking sheep dogs - just a quick walk near the stone church.

Nothing better than a boy and his dog…a working dog.
Short Easy walk for families, young and old. Certainly a must for any dog owner

Lovely tribute to the unsung heroes of all farming communities. The statue overlooks the Church of the Good Shepherd which is quite nice.

Very close to the church, this is easy to walk to and there was a lot of street parking also. Paid toilets over the footbridge. The area is kept clean which is really nice. Nice statue.

Nice stroll up to see the statue. Like how the dog is lifted up high and watching over the Church of the Good Shepherd and Lake Tekapo!

The statue is located down the road from the Church of the Good Shepherd so it could be fairly easy to miss. The statue is interesting with a life-sized sheepdog. the statue is also raised so it is fairly visible from a distance. The views here are also quite nice.

Just as much as seeing the church I loved seeing the statue of the shepherd dog as well, something else sat in a stunning location especially with the snow in the background
