Lake Manapouri was a highlight of our Sth Island trip. Spectacularly beautiful. Dont miss the wharf area as it is so beautiful and has stunning reflections of the mountains in the water

Beautiful and relaxing lake to visit. You are able to see the lake on your left when you travelled from Invercargill to Te Anau. There are a few parking spaces for visitors.

This is a lovely and picturesque lake, we stopped over by on our way to Te Anau. While there wasn't much to do around the lake in the late afternoon, it was still a great place for some photo-ops.

Stayed at Manapouri Camping Grounds. Beautiful setting with Lake Manapouri looking stunning. There were great sunsets, and sunrises, the camping ground had all amenities such as showers, toilets, kitchen, tv room, and a short walk to the café.

Such a quiet spot and with such stunning view. We arrived with probably only another 10 people on the frasers beach and the view is simply stunning. Absolutely a hidden gem and only 20 mins away from Te anau.

We visited Lake Manapouri on a hot January day & walked the track along the lakefront. We were blown away by how beautiful the lake is with the surrounding mountains.

Had to take a ferry across this lake on the way to Doubtful Sound. The granite peaks, waterfalls, and vivid beauty along the shore made for an enjoyable crossing.
