Abel Lake was a small lake in the Westland region of the South Island of New Zealand. It was located in the Southern Alps, 35 kilometres (22 mi) east of Franz Josef and was fed by the Abel Glacier. A short stream linked the lake with the Perth River. The lake (as of May 2017) was likely displaced with alluvial / glacial rock or the outlet was lowered by natural erosion or manually by gold prospectors.
