Wanaka, Queenstown and Central Otago

Two of New Zealand’s most popular resort towns are barely 50 kilometres from each other in the Central Otago region of the South Island of New Zealand. Queenstown and Wanaka lie on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and Lake Wanaka and are surrounded by rugged snow capped mountains which provide an unparalleled playground for outdoor recreation and adventure.

In such an environment it is no wonder that Wanaka attracts people wanting to live and enjoy the great lifestyle it offers and increasingly more and more domestic and international visitors want to experience that same uplifting scenery and adventure playground. The range of activities and recreation that can be undertaken in this region is breathtaking and there is something for everyone from slower paced walks, fishing, wine tasting, tramping or horse trekking through to full-on adrenalin pumping adventure.
