This walk was recommended by the Dept. of Conservation tourist centre but, like so may others, it is somewhat weather dependent. I found the drive up to be scenic and stopped more than once to take some shots. As indicated in other reviews, the last...More

Besides the sandflies, this is one quiet and peaceful lake to watch the day go by. People come here for a picnic, to read a book, and it is also a campervan site. The drive-in can be a bit tough on your car if it's...More

Took the time to drive out to Moke Lake in October and found it to be really quite pretty. My suggestion would be to make sure you have a 4WD, but I guess you could do it with a 2WD (just not as comfortable).

Great spot to visit for the day or to camp. The loop track around the lake is a lovely walk and worth doing.

In New Zealand when we travel on a gravel road it is usually many km's. This one was not that far. You are greeted by a beautiful lake. There is parking at the star, but it is best to drive on to the toilet area....More

Amazing walk around Moke Lake just a short 15 minute drive from Queenstown. This is a must do walk, taking around 1 - 2 hours depending on how fast you walk and how many times you stop. Easy walk which does include a couple of...More

An awesome little getaway 10min from Queenstown where you can witness a true piece of NZ. Making your way up the gravel road through rugged farmland sets the perfect scene. The road is accessible by 2wd cars but can get a little rough depending on...More
