Wanaka Travel Planning

Facts about Wanaka Central Otago with location information

 

 


Central Otago

 

Wanaka is located in the Central Otago region, which is breathtakingly different with vast undulating landscapes, rugged snow-capped mountains, clear blue rivers, deep gorges and tussock-clad hills.

 

More recently, in the 1860s, Central Otago was the scene of a gold rush. Trails used by miners can still be seen winding over the hills. Stone cottages, a haunted hotel, cleverly engineered water channels, mines and machinery are other relics to discover.

 

Nowadays, Central Otago is the scene of a ‘wine rush'. Pinot Noir has become one of the region's newest treasures, and many of the wineries welcome visitors for tours and tastings

 

Gold history

Retrace the steps of the hardy gold miners who carved their living from the harsh and often unforgiving environment. Relive their experiences in the museums and historic sites throughout the region.

 

Premium Pinot Noir

The mountain valley vineyards of the world's most southerly wine region have excelled in recent years. In particular, the vibrant, spicy flavour and velvety texture of Central Otago Pinot Noir has earned wide acclaim.

 

Tracks and trails

Around the hills of Central Otago, the hiking tracks are almost endless. Many were created by miners during the gold rush; others lead to alpine herb meadows, secret valleys and strange rock formations.


Wanaka

 

Lake Wanaka is New Zealand's fourth largest lake. It's clean blue waters are an inland sea for sailors and jetboaters. Walking tracks and bridle trails wander the flats and foothills. In all seasons, outdoor adventures are on offer. 

 

Lakes wherever you look

Centuries of glacial action crafted Lakes Wanaka and Hawea. Discover their scenic perfection by mountain biking the high trails, paragliding over the hills, sightseeing by air or walking the myriad of tracks.

 

Get high on Mount Aspiring

The jewel of the region is its highest point, Mount Aspiring (3,027 metres), which nestles comfortably in one of the country's largest national parks. Delve inside the park's boundaries and discover a rare world.

 

Winter sports wonderland

The Lake Wanaka region is a complete winter sports destination. Cardrona and Treble Cone are classic downhill ski fields, heli skiing and snow boarding occur high in the Harris Mountains, with Nordic skiing at the Snow Farm.
