Whether you're taking off on a short break or a long and leisurely vacation, you should know a bit about Wanaka before setting off.
Wanaka sits in Otago. Also, Queenstown, a noteworthy area, is 35 miles (56 kilometers) away.
Around 4,000 people live in this part of Otago, so there are lots of opportunities to make some new pals.
Whether they're tucked away between imposing mountains or an oasis in the middle of a dry, hot landscape, there's something magical about lakes. Venture out and discover what the view is like at Lake Wanaka. Like some more ideas? If the words blend, Bordeaux and barrique allure you, find out about winery tours and get ready to savor some taste sensations at Rippon Vineyard. And that's not all. Cast your gaze over the exhibits at Gallery Thirty Three. If something really intrigues you, chat to the attendant and find out about the artist behind it.
When you're organizing your upcoming Wanaka escape, bear in mind that the closest terminal, Wanaka Airport (WKA), is about 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the southeast of the main streets. Book your airfares, pack your luggage and prepare for some amazing adventures!
