Situated on the southern shores of a crystal clear lake with the backdrop of the dramatic New Zealand Southern Alps, Wanaka typifies the life most people associate with New Zealand – a relaxed semi-rural lifestyle with excellent sporting opportunities.

If what you enjoy is time outdoors then Wanaka has more than enough to offer – 5 world class skifields within an hours drive, the spectacular Mount Aspiring National Park with its numerous tramping and alpine recreation options, boating and fishing for trout and salmon both in Lake Wanaka and the numerous large rivers in the region.

For those who prefer to relax, there is plenty to indulge in – numerous art and craft galleries, the Warbirds museum, wonderful cafes and restaurants; as well as wine-tasting at the local vineyards. Sun on the beaches or take a lakeside stroll.
