Southern Lakes District

Home:Posts:Destinations:South Island:Southern Lakes District

The tiny township of Lake Hawea lies on the still, silent southern shore of the smallest of Otago’s glacier-carved lakes. Lake Hawea began as a collection of isolated cribs and holiday homes, 15 km north-east of Wanaka, but has grown into a pleasant village of 1,150 people with a general store selling produce and fishing licences.
