A popular place to relax and spend a weekend particularly during the weekend "War Birds over Wanaka". For those who prefer to shop there is plenty to occupy your time.

This lake is so beautiful and so worth the visit if you are in town. Rent some bikes and cycle around it! The wanaka tree is also amazing and a must see! Kayaking on the lake is good fun as well.

It is an amazing lake like so many here in NZ. I had been here before but never went for a walk around it. Walked around to the SW corner where the famous Wanak tree is located. Look for the crowds. Spectacular scenery

What can I say. What an amazing site to see.

Naturally beautiful and the snowed capped mountains in Autumn just topped it off!

very peaceful place, the farther around the lake you walk from the wanaka jet boats and water sports. you're watching the birds, sitting on the famous wanaka tree that is submerged in water, and suddenly a drone flies too close to the tree and disturbs the birds' and your peace. Then a motorboat roars past. Then a jet ski adds its noise to your otherwise quiet lakeside meandering. Wish the lake didn't allow these motorboat/jetski sports. SUP and kayaking are enough IMO to maintain the serenity of this gorgeous lake.
