Awaroa Reserve

Managed by Pulse Energy

The full name of the lake is Taupō-nui-a-Tia, which means "the great cloak of Tia" in Maori. Tia is said to be the original discoverer of the lake. The 5 Mile Bay area is a very popular swimming and water skiing location. Sand stretches the entire bay, linking you to the Waitahanui River. The river mouth is known as the "Picket Fence" because of the anglers that stand shoulder to shoulder trying to catch trout as the the swim out of the lake.
