Lake Brunner is the largest lake in the region with year-round water-based activities and trout fishing. Only 30 minutes inland from Greymouth, it is the largest lake on the West Coast and a favourite playground for locals.
There is an abundance of birdlife in the large wetland and rainforest ecosystems and there are many beautiful spots along the lake frontage for picnicing or birdwatching.
The main township is Moana, situated on the northern end of the Lake. Moana is 37 kilometres inland from Greymouth and serviced daily by both the TranzAlpine train and a daily shuttle bus service en route to Greymouth/Christchurch. The lake and township are easily accessible from either Arthur’s Pass or Lewis Pass, making the area an ideal base camp for a unique West Coast holiday.
