Wānaka Lakefront

Wānaka Lakefront

The Wānaka lakefront beach runs from the small marina to the famous Wānaka Tree. It’s a bit of a photographer’s paradise, with views of the lake, mountains and foreshore landscape, which is planted with mature willows and populars. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk from town to That Tree, then you can continue to Wanaka Station Park, the site of a homestead with well-established redwoods and other exotic pines planted by early European settlers.

From here you can hike to Glendhu Bay, or venture in the opposite direction toward Eely Point, Beacon Point and the Lake Outlet Track.
