Visited Muaupoko Park, Lake Horowhenua at sunset. Absolutely beautiful. Mosquitoes were a little thick but didn't bite... beautiful swans, ducks and geese. One side view is the lake with beautiful greenery and paddocks while the other side is beautiful mountains. Highly recommend a look.

We took our kids to feed the birds and while the birds are impressive, very friendly, the smell was awful. Sad the lake is in such a state. The park was awesome though and the kids enjoyed their time there.

Great bird life with lots of different species easy to see and access. The water seems dirty and the shore is messy. To be expected with the large number of birds about including several species of duck geese shags and waders.

Lake Horowhenua has a long Maori history with the local tribes, Mouopoko and Ngati Raukawa. Disputes about the 'ownership' of the lake continue today. As a destination for visitors, it has a wide range of water birds as well as a few semi-wild chooks. Views...More
