Lake Horowhenua Domain

Address:

Queen St West, Levin

Lake Horowhenua is located two kilometres to the west of Levin, and is the scene of rowing, yachting, picnic areas and playgrounds.

The lake, also known as Punahau, is only two metres in depth, is fed by various small streams, and drained by the Hokio Stream.

Once surrounded by podocarp forest as the centre of a rich wetland ecosystem, today the trees are gone and the wetland has been substantially drained.

The lake is owned by the Māori Muaupoko iwi, who, with the help of the Horowhenua Lake Trust, are actively attempting to restore the wetland system (that also contains the smaller Lake Papaitonga) to its former state as a conservation area.
