Lake Wilkie

Reflective and peaceful

Stunning flowering Rata to be seen in summer.

Just south of the Tautuku Outdoor Education Centre on the Southern Scenic Route, a 5-minute walk takes you to a lookout over the lake. A further 5-minute walk to a boardwalk provides a closer view. When the Rata is in flower around the viewing area, there can be a magnificent feast of colour as well as birdsong as Tui and Bellbirds enjoy the nectar. This walk is suitable for wheelchairs to the top viewing point.

Easy Walking - 20 minutes return
