Trip overview

Set against a backdrop snow-capped peaks, Wanaka sits on the shores of the lake with the not-so-surprising name of Lake Wanaka. The area is renowned for its wild glaciers, verdant beech forests and alpine lakes. It’s a land for nature lovers, adventure junkies and ski bunnies during the season. Treble Cone and Cardrona ski resorts are not far away.

As well as spending time exploring the charming township, Wanaka is an ideal base for visiting the region’s famed vineyards and national parks. All in all, having 4 nights here is a wonderful way to experience the highlights of the South Island – and if you’re tempted to stay longer, just let us know!

More about New Zealand

For a country that’s only 18% bigger than the state of Victoria and has a population less than the city of Melbourne, it packs a whole lot of amazing experiences into a small space. Plus, an exchange rate in favour of the Australian dollar is nice bonus. Split into two main islands, the North Island is where you'll find the capital of Wellington and the country's largest city of Auckland. It also has proud Maori heritage and rich cultural experiences. On the South Island, also officially named Te Waipounamu, the natural wonders shine brightly. Explore stunning Abel Tasman National Park, the great Southern Alps and beautiful Milford Sound.
