Lake Rotoroa, situated in the heart of the Nelson Lakes National Park, is surrounded by pristine and rugged natural beauty. The Sabine and D’Urville rivers stretch into the park and tracks lead to St Arnaud, Angelus, the Sabine, Mt Misery, the D’Urville, the Mole Tops and the Tutaki Valley.  Walking into the park you can access Blue Lake, also known as Rotomairewhenua and sacred to Maori, which contains the clearest natural fresh water in the world.

So Much To Do
Lake Rotoroa Water Taxi is your Gateway to the Park

You are a just a short boat ride away from a whole range of activities.  Fishing, Hunting, Long-distance walks and Day-walks, DOC Huts and Tracks, Native Birds, and our protected Longfin Eels.
