A short drive after turning off Highway 6 at Gowanbridge brought us to beautiful Lake Rotoroa with its calm waters and stunning scenery. The sandflies were a bit ferocious but the view was well worth the detour.

Stunning spot at St Arnaud: rocky "beach"; sandfly mecca but crystal clear water and stunning view. Insta-famous jetty at Kerr Bay; also West Bay (not as pretty). Take the time to do the walks in the area, particularly the Mt Robert (full day walk with outstanding views back to the lake) circuit.

We did the Braeburn Loop to the waterfall and it was a lovely hours walk. I couldn’t find a single picture of the waterfall so here are some! Not too steep and clearly accesible.

Picturesque lake. As others have said, watch out for sandflies, but this is true of any similar location on the south island.

Lovely lake, with great views and great reflections but just watch out for sand flies that try and eat you alive, as the sun is setting!
