Lake Wakatipu fills a deep valley carved into the mountains by ancient glaciers. The Dart and Rees River flows into the northern end of Lake Wakatipu; the Kawarau River, beginning near Queenstown, handles its outflow.

Because of its unusual shape, Lake Wakatipu has a 'tide' (more correctly, an unusually large seiche or "standing wave"), which causes the water to rise and fall about 10 centimetres every 25 minutes or so. Maori legend links this phenomenon to the heartbeat of a huge monster named Matau, who is said to be slumbering at the bottom of the lake.
