On the Map: Wanaka is a resort town on New Zealand’s South Island. The town is roughly 67 km (41 miles) northeast of Queenstown and 428 km (266 miles) southwest of Christchurch. 

Wanaka is a popular tourist resort on the southern shores of Lake Wanaka. The Cardrona Valley, near Wanaka, was the scene of a small goldrush in 1862. Prior to 1940 the settlement of Wanaka, the town was known as Pembroke and it has retained the flavour of a typical New Zealand holiday town, in comparison to Queenstown which has become an international resort. Wanaka is now mainly a tourist resort surrounded by mountain scenery and a ski resort in winter. The town features four distinct seasons, meaning it is the perfect year-round destination. In the summer, take advantage of the hot weather and take part in water sports, hiking, and biking. In the winter, take advantage of the snow and visit one of the area’s numerous ski areas. While springtime is perfect for exploring the lakeside tracks and trails, the vibrant colors of the fall are perfect for those photographers looking to catch some lakeside magic. No matter which season you decide to visit, Wanaka has something for everyone.
