Great hiking, we walk from wakatipu lake (glenorchy road) and it took 2hours with many photo stops. Sign show 3 to 4 hours, but this is over estimated. We did in winter: color are wonderful and we were alone on the track and around the...More

A hidden gem. Quiet walk with exceptional scenery. Easy access from Queenstown. Few people there. Easy walk.

What a beautiful place to camp! Running water and long-drop loos comprise the facilities, but what a location! Track is a bit rocky and we were a little nervous about our tyres but they were fine in the end and it was more than worth...More

One of the things I was really hoping to see while in NZ was Kea birds. They are alpine parrots. We didn't see any in Franz Josef, Fox Glacier, or Milford Sound but we were thrilled to spot them at Moke Lake. We absolutely did...More

Beautiful tranquil spot with DOC facilities. Would be an amazing to relax and unwind but you must have plenty of insect repellent and keep car windows and doors shut.

The road has improved a lot since our last visit, very accessible now. A beautiful lake, on a still day has amazing reflections. Great for a walk . Lots of birds about too if you like birds.

Great for photo-shooting. Pleasant and scenic drive along the way. We like the quietness there. Good or relaxing.

We bought a picnic which meant at one stage warding off the ducks but what a lovely and wild spot. Lake is lovely and the mountains stark. Just remember to pack insect repellent as there were a lot of sandflies biting the day we arrived.

For the majority of the year a normal sedan will be fine. Don't drive it during the winter if there is snow & ice without having snow chains. Enjoy the drive up to the lake as much as the lake it's self.
