  • WOW! This is incredible. Gently undulating walk and stunning native bush. Loved the bird song, so so pretty and cool to walk under the canopy most of the way. Definitely take togs to swim in the...

  • Did this while waiting on the weather to do Tongariro Crossing. A nice afternoon out, not difficult in any sense of the word, decent views, frequent bench stops along the way. Recommend for families.....  more

  • Easy trail (although its a solid climb in and out) in great condition. 5 minute beach is a great spot to stop for a snack / lunch

  • Nice views of this lake and a quite walk away from city life. Tongariro National Park secluded this lake and serene walk
  • Great little track for photos and a wander. Don't expect vast views, very dense forest with a lake in the middle.
  • Stunning place. Easy walk around the lake either way. Only a few steps and we saw a few strollers hiking around. Beautiful native fauna including some massive trees. Water is clean and clear. Heard lots of frogs and heaps of native birds. 6.2kms in total. Take a picnic and your camera.
  • Awesome hiking track, we often do it during winter on a rainy day when Whakapapa ski fields are closed
  • The most majestic lake. Easy walk, stunning surreal scenery.
