The settlement of Hawea is found at Lake Hawea's southern shore, surrounding its outflow into the Hawea River, a short tributary of the Clutha, which it joins near Albert Town.
Hawea is a popular resort, its lake well used in the summer for fishing, boating and swimming. The nearby mountains and fast-flowing rivers allow for adventure tourism year-round, with jetboating and skiing facilities located nearby.
