The Southern Lakes
The Southern Lakes.
This euphonious name of New Zealand's most beautiful lake is really a corruption of the original Maori and is also misplaced, through a pioneer map-maker's error. It is from manavia-popore, meaning “throbbing heart,” which is one of the Mavora lakes, in the ranges near Wakatipu. The ancient and very appropriate name of Manapouri is Motu-rau, meaning “Hundred Islands,’ or “Many Islands,” This information was given to me by old Maoris of Southland in 1903.page break
