Lake Dispute and Moke Lake, Queenstown

Grade: Moderate 1.4km / 0.9miles

There are many excellent walks in Queenstown area. On that we particularly enjoy tramping is the 1.4km Lake Dispute walkway that traverses rocky shrubland between Queenstown and Glenorchy up to Lake Dispute which is a popular trout fishing spot. The track is steep and rocky in the first section, with ruts here and there, then it becomes grassy when it levels off, rewarding you with lovely views of the lake.

You can link with the Mt Crichton Loop Track from the lake’s southern end. Following along Lake Dispute, the track connects with the Lake Dispute to Moke Lake Track.

Continue around Lake Dispute, through a low saddle then follow the fence line to Moke Lake, where you can take either the left or right fork to the car park and campsites at Moke Lake’s far end.
