"the road emerges from the tunnel of trees to views of the lake"


Lake Kaniere is under 20km from Hokitika. From the main road in Hokitika (SH6), turn east down Stafford Street, this becomes Lake Kaniere Road and follow this inland for 5 minutes to the township of Kaniere. After you pass through the Kaniere township take the left hand turn towards Lake Kaniere and continue for another 10 minutes until you reach the lake. A precise detailed description may be requested.

Directions for cyclists travelling on the West Coast Wilderness Trail will be supplied on request. Let Grant know if you are coming from Hokitika OR from Kumara, via Cowboy Paradise/Milltown
