by Queenstowners for picnics after the big open water crossing.

MOKE LAKE

• Also one of Queenstown’s favourite spots for a picnic and swim, Moke Lake is
about a 15 min drive from Queenstown, amongst High country farm land and
native bush. This lake is warmer than Wakatipu and sheltered and gives us a
good option when conditions on Wakatipu are not favourable.
