Lake Tutira is a body of water in northeastern
Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.
Much of the area was surveyed by
Herbert Guthrie-Smith, who farmed 60,000 acres (240 km²) surrounding the lake. Guthrie-Smith, a naturalist, published "Tutira: the story of a New Zealand sheep station" in 1921. Today, a camp is run at the site of his homestead.
The lake contains a high-resolution record of the sedimentation since its formation about 6,500 years ago.cite journal

Sedimentary cores from the lake were used to demonstrate that the landslides mobilising sediments for transport into the lake occur in frequency and magnitude according to a power law.cite journal
