Lake Elterwater is a lake in southern Marlborough about 4km north of Ward, approximately two kilometres long and 300m wide. A parking area and toilet are provided at the northern end of the lake off State Highway One.
The lake provides an important habitat for a number of waterfowl. Australasian coots, pukeko mallard and paradise ducks are among the species found on the lake. In dry years, the lake bed may dry up completely.
