Ski, Snowboard, Hike, Walk, Fish…the choice is yours.

The freedom to do your own thing, away from the crowds, with breathtaking lakes and mountains as your playground. We love our lifestyle. We know you’ll love it too.

A year-round destination set against the pristine alpine backdrop of Mount Aspiring National Park, you can still discover that totally relaxed Kiwi way of life at Lake Wanaka.

Wanaka has some unique attractions that are not to be missed. So if the weather is a bit inclement then there’s always something for you to do inside. Cinema Paradiso is world famous for its intermission with hot cookies and homemade ice cream, while Puzzling World is challenging for both young and old. The Transport and Toy Museum has one of the largest private collections of toys and vehicles, while next door the NZ Fighter Pilots Museum is a poignant reminder of our former heroes.

Have a Shot is a chance to take aim and then test your climbing skills at Base Camp. Ski or snowboard at Treble Cone, Cardrona or the Snow Park. Walk and bike on many of the tracks and trails. Enjoy a wine tasting at the Rippon Vineyard or take a tour of the Central Otago vineyards. The choice is yours to do as little or as much as you like.
