The Area

Wanaka is a central location for visiting Queenstown, the Central Otago towns of Cromwell, Clyde and Alexandra.

Travelling from the north, on your journey to Wanaka, you can visit Mt Cook and Lake Tekapo or the beautiful West Coast, which is distinctly different to the alpine environment that makes this lake-side town so special.

Or, travelling from the south, you could enjoy our sister-town of Queenstown, Arrowtown and the magnificent Crown Range. There is an endless variety of activities including boating, skiing, fishing, walking tracks- along the lakeside & Clutha River, NZ’s largest river.

Everything is at your fingertips. A scenic flight over the mountain tops is to be recommended, and Wanaka is nearby to a great selection of vineyards to visit for lunches or wine-tasting tours.

You may want to take a wonderful drive by road along the lake-side to visit the popular Blue Pools, the Matukituki Valley and Rob Roy Glacier.

Should you be seeking adventure, there is sky-diving, scenic flights and a selection of indoor places to visit should the weather be inclement. If visiting in winter, there are 2 ski-fields within 45 minutes; Treble Cone & Cardrona, which combined, feature over 1015 Hectares of skiable terrain.
