“So peaceful”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

This walkway is short and can be done by everyone. It follows an easy trail and boardwalk away from the housing area so is very peaceful. The lake is stunning on a lovely day and the water so warm for a paddle. There are composting toilets near the end of the walkway. A short wee gem in the area.

“Beautiful Scenery”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

What a beautiful place, free to walk around the lake, see the birdlife in their natural habitat. Along the walkway are bird blinds where you can sit and watch the birdlife.

“Lovely walk through marshy bird sanctuary”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

Lake Okareka is lovely (and has a lovely beach called Boyes Beach). The walkway is great - you get away from the town and enjoy the scenery and the bird life. We say Canada Geese, Black swans, pukekos, herons, swallows and other birds I didn't recognise.
