Read, S.A.L. 1976 Geological report on a landslide, Lake Te Anau. Lower Hutt: New Zealand Geological Survey. New Zealand Geological Survey report EG 261 11 p.

Abstract: A large landslide on the western shores of Lake Te Anau was reported in the 1968 report of the NZ Scenery Preservation Society. In the report the landslide was claimed to have occurred because of high lake levels and was used as evidence against the NZED proposals for controlling Lake Te Anau levels. The landslide area was visited in the afternoon of the 14 September 1973 to determine the cause of movement and the likelihood of its recurrence. The trip was made in the Fiordland National Park Board launch ''Richard Henry'', the author being accompanied by A. Cragg (Park Board), I.C. McKellar (NZGS) and G. Halliday (MWD). (auth)
