“Helpful Tourist Info, Reservations, and Gifts”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

This is a tourist info center, right where the busses pull in at the lake front in Wanaka. They can book your bus connections as well as various adventure activities around town.
It has a cute log cabin theme and the staff when I visited was very courteous and competent.
They have a small selection of gifts at reasonable prices. This is was the only place I came across in Wanaka where you could buy Thierry Huet's photographic postcards. He's a local photographer who does terrific landscapes.

Hi N_Skier,

Thanks for your kind words. We love our range of postcards, they capture Wanaka the way most people would love to be able to, and are a great souvenir.

We hope you enjoyed your time with us?

Many thanks,
The i-SITE team

“The place for Information”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Nice little log cabin overlooking the lake with the snow topped mountains in the back. Lots of brochures to look at if stuck for ideas on things to do. Can also book excursions to Queenstown and Milford sound just to name a few. Few gifts to have a look at. Staff seem very helpful. Wish more countries had I-sites!

“Wanaka Info”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Lots of brochures stocked for attractions all over the South Island not just the local area. Bookings could be made there for Queenstown attractions as well as Lake Wanaka sites. Great range of trinkets for souvenirs and staff very knowledgeable of every thing advertised.
