“A very scenic place”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

There was nothing to dislike about Wanaka as a tourist in my own country. It is a very scenic place and is probably more scenic in the winter ski season, we went in the autumn and it was still beautiful, the people were friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed our stay.

Lovely town. Worth the visit. Will travel to again in the future.

Great location. Lots to do. Beautiful meals at Amigos Mexican Restaurant. YUM! Favourite thing to do was a walk along the lakefront, soaking up the views.

“Fun & Attractive”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is a tourist town but it still has a lot of character and is fun to explore. The lake front walks are wonderful in both directions. Lots of lake activities for those that enjoy it.

Wanaka is a great place to relax which was just what we needed on our break from Christchurch. It is a pretty town with lots of walking and cycling tracks.
