Like a mini Taupo but surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks. Why did nobody tell me about this place before? It's a really lovely little town.

A group visited Wanaka on June 28 & 29. So LUCKY had wonderful wearther which
supposed not that nice during winter period.

From the pictures, you can tell how lucky we are.

3 bedroom with big sitting & kitchen space at Greenbrook allowed us
to enjoy our own cooking while kids enjoyed the firework. Yes, that was
a special evening that had firework in Wanaka, how NICE !

Fish & chip shop just along the main street of the lake is very very good.
Sure, pick the Blue cod.

2 kids had so much fun at Puzzling World and the next morning bike ride
along the waterfront.

Don't missed Wanaka when you visit Queenstown, just about 1:15 hour drive.

There are many and varied activities around the lake.

The town itself has a number of restaurants and shop and one large supermarket for self caterers like us

Wanaka is a beautiful little town with lots to offer. It's on a beautiful lake, with many nearby trails. Cute restaurants and shops line the streets. It's a great alternative to noisy and crowded Queenstown. Also, if you not planning to drive to Milford Sound, it's a great place to take a small plane to the Sound.
