A big volcanic crater that’s filled up with water over the last 100,000 years or so. Unlike nearby Tank Farm, Lake Pupuke’s sidewalls were never breached by the sea, so it’s still completely fresh water (but the ocean is just a few hundred meters away).
The lake is popular with paddlers and rowers. It’s surrounded by pricey homes, parks, and the old pump house , which now has a theater and cafe.
