Maungawera Lodge is ideally situated to take advantage of its central locality between the Central Otago and Southern Lakes, including Fiordland National Park, many ski areas, and New Zealand's West Coast World Heritage Park area.

Many lifetimes could be spent exploring this wide-ranging and remote, varied terrain. The activities possible are legion, and Maungawera Lodge specializes in hosting hunting and fishing visitors. The Hawea river is only 10 minutes walk from the Lodge. Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka are only 10 minutes' drive away. All are stocked with trout and some landlocked salmon.
