Surrounded by stunning mountains including Mount Aspiring National Park, the lakes and rivers in the area offer excellent boating, fishing, kayaking and swimming.

Historically a gold mining town, the Wanaka area is now renowned for its high country farming, wineries and wide range of outdoor activities. It is a key winter sports destination with world class ski fields, heli-skiing and nordic skiing and a lively restaurant and café scene.
