South Island map showing Wanaka


Wanaka, sheltered behind the Southern Alps in the South Island of New Zealand, is the ideal holiday destination. There is something for everyone, whatever your age, ability or sense of adventure. From fishing to flightseeing, tramping to tennis, horsetrekking to heli skiing, goldpanning to golfing. Close to the Mount Aspiring National Park, the area is a natural paradise.

About an hour's drive from Queenstown, Wanaka is very near several excellent ski areas (such as Treble Cone and Cardrona) and some very good places to go tramping. Many of the most popular activities in Wanaka involve the beautiful lake. While the pace of life here is far more sedate and less huried than in Queenstown, Wanaka features many of the same high adrenalin activities and adventures. So if you want to do your paragliding, jetboating or rap jumping in a more quiet and secluded atmosphere, Wanaka might just be the place.
