Lake Wanaka

Wanaka

Lake Wanaka is the perfect place to go kayaking, hiking or biking; Wanaka is the most beautifully set of the South Island lakes so you'll want to explore the outdoors.

The lakeside town of Wanaka can provide you with an appealing mix of fine living, family fun and adventure. It has a high concentration of cafes, restaurants and interesting shops. It’s obvious that the Wanaka district is nicely obsessed with aviation.

At the airport you can arrange to go flightseeing or sky diving, and every two years the town hosts a spectacular air show, Warbirds over Wanaka, revolving around classic military aircraft. Classed as one of the best warbird shows in the world it features historic aircraft, RNZAF jets, aerobatic formations and helicopters.

Winter is a busy time in Wanaka, as snow sports fans flock here for the excellent skiing and snowboarding. Local snow venues include Treble Cone, Cardrona, Snow Park and Snow Farm. Wanaka is also a handy base if you want to hike or climb in Mount Aspiring National Park.

Functional facts: Approx. population 5040,i-SITE Visitor Centre, wide range of accommodation.
