Found this little gem on our way to Wanaka. Such a gorgeous place, when we come back we plan on staying here. We stayed for a drink and a light snack, it was a shame we couldn't stay longer. Highly recommend stopping off here!!

Good morning. There are shuttles available but they must be booked beforehand as they do not stop here as a matter of course. The best people to contact are either Alpine Shuttles or Yello out of Wanaka.
