Waihora Lagoon

Pureora Forest Park

This easy, flat walk in Pureora Forest Park takes you to a small rain-fed lake surrounded by tall kahikatea and rimu trees.

The boardwalk snakes through the bush to the viewing platform, which provides a tranquil spot to enjoy beautiful reflections and a variety of bird life.

This track is best enjoyed after rainfall to appreciate the mirror effect of the lake. However, keep in mind that heavy rain may bring the lagoon level up over the boardwalk.

Combine this short walk with the nearby Great Lake Trail or with the variety of outdoor experiences on offer in the Pureora Forest Park.
