Hello and Welcome to Ōhau!

This small family run business incorporating both the Lake Ōhau Lodge and Ōhau Snow Fields has been operated by us, Mike and Louise Neilson since the mid 1980's.  We have a passion for this outstandingly beautiful, yet stark landscape and a strong desire to see it's special environment preserved.

Logan McPherson is our Manager who lives here locally with his family.

Lake Ōhau in the Mackenzie High Country is cradled between the Ōhau Range to the west in the Main Divide and the Ben Ōhau range to the east.  In summer it is endowed with fine weather and long daylight hours and in winter with reliable snow.

While the area is known for the Ohau Snow Fields, and more recently the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, come the end of the ski season there are stunning wilderness areas to be explored by walking, hiking or biking further up the valley or around the Lodge during the summer months.

Lake Ōhau Lodge is a great place not only to stay, but to base yourself so you can enjoy all the activities the region has on offer.

Stay at the Lake Ohau Lodge, get out there and explore the surrounding nature and be treated to a friendly family atmosphere with excellent food and a fun, casual vibe.
