So many places to visit at Wanaka that we are considering staying there for a few days on our next visit. It is just so beautiful and so many amazing walking tracks

We were told this was one of the most beautiful places on earth, so we booked in to spend 2 nights here. The view was quite pretty however the walks around the lake were too windy for us to really enjoy the view. The town...More

Not too crowded, still has a small lakeside town appeal and close to skifields. It was the nicest town, still not built out by the big hotels. Everyone here is warm, friendly and helpful. Really great place. Highly recommend it.

Do drop by this area if you are in NZ for a self-drive tour. The mountains and the lakes at different angles form different picture everytime you look at it.

Visited in June and it was very quiet and enjoyable. Not sure what it's like during tourist season. ....

Wanaka is a lovely little village in close proximity to the Cardrona Ski and Snow fields. Lots of eateries, a full service Supermarket (New World) and some of the best sunsets you will ever see in Winter. (Phone is copyrighted to me).

the locals were very nice and helpful, but if you wanted to speak to a New Zealander you're out of luck, because it was full of French, Irish, English, and Scottish workers.

It's an amazing place. The lake, hills & the perfect location of the town. There are loads of activities to do, restaurants, etc.. The i centre gives more details about the activities you can do .. it was just an amazing place.

Such a gorgeous town. I wish we had more time to explore. Next time we come over we plan to stay a couple of nights in Wanaka. Beautiful scenery! One down side, expensive petrol.

I've watched Wanaka mushroom over the years. Once regarded as a sleepy town and back in 1970 seen as just a burgeon county in it's infancy, it's been said that the permanent population of the township back then was a mere 800 permanent residents. Now...More
