Amazing views and a beautiful location. Be prepared for a lot of windy conditions and heavy waves. Relaxing bit make sure you pack a jacket.

We came by to ski the Ohau Ski Fields and stayed at Ohau Lodge. I couldn't see many places where a car could park in the area to access the beach. There were a few close to the lodge entrance. I walked down from the lodge and got onto the beach on foot. You do need to walk through a bit of bush but it was quite sparse so no need in squeezing between plants.
The beach is stone and the lake is very calm. The mountains surrounding it were quite breathtaking and very nice to look at. It was a quiet and enjoyable walk along the lakefront. There were a few trees to sit under but it was mostly uncovered. There was also a creek which you had to cross with the help of a fallen log.

Gorgeous lake with stunning scenery on every side. Lots of places where you can access the lake to fish or kayak or just stop and picnic or camp beside.
Quite a long drive down and currently the far end is closed off but don’t let that stop you checking it out and enjoying all that scenery.

We rode the Greta Track on our own horses, wonderful day out, challenging terrain, and majestic views, ensure you check both ends of the track are unlocked, before you go. (or Check with DoC) go on a clam not to warm or to cold day.

Lake Oahu is a sparkling lake in the Mackenzie Basin, nestled among towering mountains. Stunning views.

Cycled into a headwind coming from Twizel. Very strong headwind and rain. Took 30 minutes to cycle into thus headwind to get to Oahu lodge. Very nice spot at the Lodge.

Spent the day on the shore of the lake, swimming, sun bathing and enjoying a wonderful picnic with a bunch of friends, the surrounding mountains are magnificent and the region is simply spectacular, well worth the drive

It was a very calm afternoon and there was little movement on the water and the Blue water glistened. The lake would be a great place for recreational activities. Definitely worth a visit
