Mmm... Lake Wanaka, New Zealand!

The jaw droppingly stunning scenery of Wanaka is a must when traveling through New Zealand's south island. A popular overnight stop for backpackers heading on through to Queenstown - New Zealand's party capital - Lake Wanaka is the ideal location to snap up some amazing photos of the Lake and neighbouring southern alps, chill out with a Kayak or Paddleboard, grab a bike to explore the lake front, check out the quirkiness of Puzzling World and take a hike to the top of Mt Iron.

During Winter, Wanaka serves as a popular hot spot for snow enthusiasts, offering the perfect base to tear up Treble Cone Ski Area and Cardrona Ski Field. An absolute must visit!
