Lake Ngā Roto Te Awamutu

View on map
65 Bank Road, Te Awamutu
One of the Waikato region's natural wetlands, Lake Ngaroto (Lake Ngā Roto) provides an easy 1.5 hour walk and is a popular recreational reserve year round.

Plentiful birdlife around the lake make for ample bird watching opportunities, and the mostly flat walking track and picnic area make this a great family walk in the Waikato.

The local sailing club is regularly on the water, while the camouflaged maimai (huts) around the lake's edge play host to duck hunters during the months of May and June.

The walking track passes through bush areas, farmland and wetlands as it navigates around the lake, with signage providing information and illustrations about the local ecology.

Please Note: Dogs must be kept on a lead.
