“Just beautiful.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had five days and saw the lake in its' many faces - sunny, overcast and sometimes with a magical effect of mist slowly clearing. A leisurely walk along the lakefront is a grrat way to relax and unwind.

There is a pleasant lake front walk with seating areas for viewing. The lake is very scenic and photogenic.

“Serene, and beautiful!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Even on the weekends, this place was the epitome of serenity and peace. Walk along the lake day or night, have a picnic by the lake in many of the seats facing it, or just on the grass, take in the sun, read a book - it's all good!
You can see birds on the lake or on the shore that won't attack at the sight of you, so no need to worry.
There's a truck by the lake, and I have fond memories of having my fish & chips by the lake, just taking in the sights.
You can't miss it when you're in Te Anau, and you shouldn't. It's just lovely.

“Huge, serene lake”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Huge lake and perfectly peaceful. Lovely to walk along by the lake or just sit and look out over the water. There are boat trips too, but we just enjoyed the views.

“Kepplar track, Humbolt and Marian Falls, Key Summit”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We walked to to first hut, stayed overnight at the hut, then walked on to top of Mt Luxmore and back to Brod Bay the next day. Scenery was stunning and the hut was great.
