Te Urewera National Park and Lake Waikaremoana

The ruggedly beautiful Te Urewera National Park is famous for its lakes which are a mecca for fresh water trout fishing, the largest of which is also the site of one of New Zealand’s Great Walks.  The Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk skirts the lake edge, through 46 kilometres of natural forest and deserted beaches. Walking Legends Waikaremoana Discovery Walking Tour is a fantastic 4 day introduction to the region, taking in the highlights of the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk.

Geologists believe the lake was formed about 2200 years ago after a huge landslide that blocked the Waikaretaheke River. Birdlife includes up to 35 fully protected native species, which may be seen or heard.

Pig and deer hunting is another popular pastime, guided trips can be arranged. Fishing for both rainbow and brown trout in the lakes and rivers is excellent t - anglers require a Rotorua Trout Fishing District Licence.

Hawkes Bay Tourism has a great website with lots more information about the region.
