Lake Brunner is a natural fisherman’s dream. It’s where they say that ‘trout die of old age’ and better yet, it can be fished in all year, in almost any weather. Moana is the lake’s only settlement and is one of the stops on the TranzAlpine railway (voted in the top six train journeys in the world). A favourite playground for locals, it offers swimming, jet boating, and water skiing along with some lovely scenic walks and cycling tracks. When it comes to rivers, lakes and streams there are more than 41 below, above and around Moana, so you’ll never stop exploring.
