Lake Wanaka lies at the heart of the Otago Lakes in between Lake Ohau to the north and Lake Wakatipu to the south. The township of Wanaka is situated at the south end of the lake. Glendhu Bay is a popular place for visitors. Magnificent Lake Hawea is only 15 minutes away.

Wanaka is the gateway town to Mt Aspiring National Park and is only a short drive away from Queenstown through the Cardrona Valley.

It is also the start of the journey to the west coast travelling along Lakes Hawea and Wanaka to Makarora and the Haast Pass.

Even cloudy days can't dim the beauty of Lake Wanaka.
