Lake Benmore

Lake Benmore is the largest artificial lake in New Zealand. It offers a great variety of scenery, plentiful shelter and excellent cruising.

Lake Benmore Part 1 Introduction

Lake Benmore is undoubtedly one of the most attractive of the Southern Lakes with plenty of water, attractive scenery, low rainfall and challenges for the trailer yachtsman.

Lake Benmore Part 2 Ahuriri Arm & Gorge

This is the area of water seen by most travellers passing by road and is certainly not the most attractive portion of the lake.

Lake Benmore Part 3 Amphitheatre and Dam

After winding through the Gorge this area can be disturbing in that it is relatively easy for new chums without a chart to lose their bearings.

Lake Benmore Part 4 Waitaki Gorge & Arm

This is a spectacular part of the Lake with steep and craggy mountains and cliffs above the lake.
