Lake Hayes Estate (often shortened to LHE) is a suburb nearby to Queenstown in the South Island of New Zealand. It is named after and situated near Lake Hayes. The population of the town at the 2018 census was 6,240. The main access to Lake Hayes Estate is off State Highway 6. To the west is the newer sub division of Shotover Country which can be accessed via Jones Road.

McBride Park is one of the central points of the estate and was named after a family of industrious settlers who first lived on the land. In the centre of the estate is a large grassed park which is surrounded by a bike park and bike pump track made of asphalt. There is a mini multi-purpose turf near Onslow Road which is used for basketball, hockey, tennis and football. There is also a large children’s playground next to Hope Avenue which includes a variety of activities available including a flying fox and a climbing rock. There is also a public barbecue incorporated with the playground.

There are a large number of public trails that circle the estate and allow good access throughout the suburb. They are used by walkers, runners and cyclists and connect to the much larger Queenstown Trail. The Lake Hayes Circuit track connects with Lake Hayes to the north via Ada Place.
