Mmm Wanaka... a little touch or paradise found in New Zealand's south island and just a short drive from Queenstown. Well known for its world class ski fields and stunning scenery - the tiny town of Lake Wanaka attracts travellers, explorers and snow junkies from across the globe. We can see why...
