Lake McKenzie

Lake McKenzie is one of Island’s best-known freshwater lakes. It is a refreshing swimming spot and has good camping and picnic facilities nearby. Lake Wabby is the deepest of the Island’s lakes and is surrounded by a massive sand-blow. Lake Allom is an attractive small lake with a forest backdrop. If you are lucky, you may encounter its special inhabitants – tortoises.

Eli Creek

Eli Creek is the largest freshwater creek along the east coast, with over four million litres of water flowing from its mouth onto the eastern beach and into the ocean every hour! The swift current makes for an invigorating swim.

The Cathedrals

The Cathedrals are towering cliffs of multicoloured sands sculptured by the wind into huge peaks. The Champagne Pools, beautiful rock pools filled with bubbling seawater, are excellent swimming holes at low tide and are located at Middle Rocks, just north of Indian Head.

Maheno Ship Wreck

The Wreck of the Maheno is located just north of Happy Valley on the eastern beach. The vessel had been a well-known trans-Tasman liner and was heading for a Japanese wrecking yard when she was driven ashore during a cyclone in 1935. Today the hull lies slowly deteriorating in the harsh salt environment.
