"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.
