Known for its magnificent brooding headlands and pristine waters teaming with fish, Lake Ohau is a perfect spot to park up your Queenstown Motorhome Rental, kick back and relax. Located in the Mackenzie Basin it is known for its fishing, and the walking and bike trails round the lake form part of the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail.
The smallest of the 3 glacial lakes (the others being Lake Pukaki, and Lake Tekapo,) Lake Ohau feeds into the Waitaki River Hydro Project,
Great ski fields are at The Ohau Ski Fields in the winter, and the fishing, boating, and swimming, are excellent. Camp grounds are found in sheltered spots around the lake making it ideal for campervan rentals which are well catered for in these spots. The village of Twizel is just down the road, and back along the road the turnoff to Aoraki Mount cook is not far away at Lake Pukaki.
Further north is Lake Tekapo and The Church of the Good Shepherd, another iconic spot to drive to in your Queenstown Motorhome Rental. Or if you are heading south, a drive through the Lindis Pass and onto Wanaka will get you to That Wanaka Tree on the banks of Lake Wanaka
There is a magnificent carved post on the shores dedicated to the maori people who lived there before it was settled, and a plaque telling of the history. The maori translation of ‘ohau’ means ‘windy place’, but for a serene quiet place to park your Queenstown Motorhome Rental, you can’t go past this amazing place steeped in history.
Whether you’re looking for a 2-berth campervan, 4-berth motorhome or 6-berth motorhome, your Queenstown Motorhome Rental could be the right vehicle for you.
