Lake Ohau Alpine Village is a small settlement with some permanent residents, it has a quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

Activities in the Ohau area include fly-fishing in the lake and near by rivers , there is easy access to tramping and hiking tracks,boating and water skiing, Ohau Snowfield overlooks the village and is open for skiing and snow boarding from July - Oct on average.

The Alps to Ocean(A2O) bike track runs right past the village and if you don't have a bicycle then a walk on the bike trail is just as rewarding, you can choose to go a long distance or a short distance, depending on your time frame and the weather.

    Owner/manager responds:

    So sorry you had a problem with rubbish disposal. There is supposed to be a wheelie bin on the property for rubbish and a notice in the house. Will get it sorted out before the next people arrive tonight. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Nichola
