We enjoyed the boat trip to Ruby's Island. Fascinating and well managed by a friendly and informative boat captain.

Spend more than just a few days here! Loads of great hikes around and tons of lodging and restaurants to choose from. Favorite NZ spot!

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
