Gentle and picturesque meander around the eastern shore of Lake Kohangatera.

A picturesque cruise around the eastern shore of Lake Kohangatera and its inland wetland. About 0.3km past the track that went to the now permanently removed Gollans Stream boardwalk, the track ends suddenly with a Private Property sign.
Return to Baring Head the same way.

For a demanding detour, climb Valley View Hill for great views over Lake Kohangatera and the surrounding hills.

NB: Although still considered to be a freshwater water lake, Lake Kohangatera is slightly more brackish than Lake Kohangapiripiri.

Access Info

2.5km along Baring Head, 50m past the Lake Kohangatera outlet, turn left through a gate. If you get to a driveway that comes down the hill past Lake Kohangatera, then you have gone 250m too far. After going 150m past the entry gate, cross the paddock towards the right. Then turn left through another gate and follow the track around the lake shore.
