  • Short walk along the lake to see the reflection and greenery, great for taking a breather during the long drive from Te Anau to Milford sound  more »
  • My wife were on a tour to go to our overnight Milford Sound cruise and stopped here to observe and go on the walk through the beech forest. Nearby are the Earl Mountains.  more »
  • The day was perfect, sunny and no wind, and even though the walk is not long, the scenery was truly beautiful. The lake was a mirror.  more »

  • Best lake I have ever been in my life till date. It’s on the way to Milford sound.
  • Beautiful, if it's not got ducks swimming around or wind blowing. We unfortunately had the latter. Still a nice loop to walk though (:
  • We stopped by here when we were on the way back from Milford Sound.. such a beautiful lake. We could see the perfect reflection of mountain on the lake.. check the photos i got from there
