Owner description: The largest of a dozen lakes formed by volcanic activity, this clear, calm lake offers cruises, kayaking and sailing, as well as great trout fishing.

Lots of hungry looking swans, but despite the glint in their eye, they did not try to eat our biscuits! The children enjoyed the playground. Beautiful setting.

Just sat at the lakefront this trip and enjoyed the sunshine from our rental car as the southerly winds were very chilly. Area is maintained well, great kids play area and clean public toilets.

Nice lake, as many others in New Zealand, for a relaxing walk.
Landscape is nice, though is not as beautiful as around other lakes, such as Lake Wakatipu.
If you suffer from sinusitis or rhinitis the sulphur in the air might well heal you!

The way the steam rises from the hot areas of the lake and the clear cold quality of the cold sections is unique to these type of thermal experiences.

We stayed at a beautiful bach directly onto the lake which gave us beautiful views morning and evening. The town is a bit mixed but there are loads of attractions to keep everyone entertained. We visited in Winter but were lucky enough to have blue skies and sun throughout our visit. A great family destination.
