“Tranquility”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great place to get out of the bustle of Queenstown.
Not too far - although there's a 4km stretch of unsealed road - and you're in the peaceful and beautiful area that is Moke Lake.

The circular walk all round lake took us just over an hour. It does have a few short inclines and it's a little disappointing to have to use the road for a small section at the end, but still good and easy walk and a great way to spend an afternoon.

“One of the most beautiful places I have been”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Road our mountain bikes around the lake and even though it was raining it was beautiful. A magical place worth a visit - rain or shine.

“Worth the hike or drive”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Picturesque, tucked away along the floor of a valley leading up from Lake Wakatipu, Moke Lake is a great day picnic spot or overnight camp. Beautiful camp grounds right at the lake's edge, with sparkling clear waters and good fishing.

“Wonderful hike”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We took a Christmas day hike around Moke Lake. The whole area was pristine. I think we saw one other group on our walk and it was a warm sunny day.
