Very easy walk around the lake, unfortunately the view is covered so you are mostly walking in the bushes except for a few 100 meters on a beach. There are no tables at the picnic place but a couple of benches to sit on.

An easy track around Lake Rotopounamu with many possibilities to stop at the lakeside to have a break. We saw so many different forms - very well labelled trees. Very informative!

Great short walk. Up a hill through forest to get to the lake. Beautiful views of the calm blue water all around the lake. Secluded spots for picnics or excellent to quietly sit and reflect.

An initial uphill effort makes the views and swim in the lake totally worth it. Seemingly untouched native bush teeming with bird-life. Beach is perfect for picnics and paddling. A good distance for the little tikes (and those who end up carrying them)

A superb little walk of 90mins or so. Isolated and beautiful.
