We settled in Middle Earth since 1988 but we never been to Lake Hanlon!
According to the Buller District Council...
"This lovely tranquil lake is relatively recent as it was formed in 1929 as a result of the Murchison earthquake.
This mirror lake sits on a south terrace of the Karamea Bluff.
It is in the middle of beech forest with a track that is an easy grade –
rising moderately and then winding down to the lake. A beautifully
built viewing platform allows great viewing and photos."
