"A mini queenstown" Wanaka by littlebush
Wanaka Travel Guide: 118 reviews and 382 photos
Wanaka's beautiful! Situated on Lake Wanaka, surrounded by mountains and with enough adrenalin sports to keep u going, its a fab pace to spend a while. its an hour from queenstown and a good substitute if you find queesnstown too fast.
wanaka is small but its got a few decent bars/restaurants, and gets busy in the high season. nearby is the awesome mount aspiring national park for walking,scenery.
On my visit in December 2014 we did do much, arriving late and walking along the lake and the getting a parking ticket for sleeping in the town at night in the camper. Annoying as there were no signs and we were 3km out, and a very painful $200 fine.
Theres a few bars in town, 2 irish ones but the main bar is Shooters, busy with backpackers. They do 2 1/2 pint jugs for... more travel advice
I did : Mount Aspiring national park(see seperate pages) for great walks/scenery. Canyoning - a full day abseiling down... more travel advice
