Lake Wanaka, South Island, New Zealand – Share in the Secret

Wanaka is still a well kept secret!  While all the tourist buses head to the large international style resort of Queenstown, locals and visitors 'in the know' stay in Wanaka.

Lonely Planet Travel Guides describe Wanaka as 'a sporty laid back town which offers a sharp contrast to the hype of Queenstown'.  Only an hour’s drive from Queenstown, Wanaka is a great alternative if you prefer a smaller "village' atmosphere.

What is the Wanaka Collection?

We are a select group of accommodation and activity operators in Wanaka, New Zealand who have been working together for many years to share the secrets of Wanaka’s lake, rivers, snow capped mountains and breathtaking Mt Aspiring National Park with visitors from all over the world.

As a network of Wanaka activity operators (jet boating, helicopter sightseeing, lake cruising, fishing, guided hiking and exclusive transport service to ) and 4, 4+, 5 star bed & breakfast small hotels and hosted accommodation we are a one-stop shop for a short or long stay in Wanaka.

Who are we?
