Wanaka, New Zealand - Find Vacation Rentals

Otago, Southland, Canterbury, West Coast and Nelson-Marlborough are the regions that make up South Island in New Zealand. Some of the towns situated in the Otago Region are Queenstown, Dunedin, Otago, and Wanaka. Stay in vacation rental accommodations. Conveniently set up as your home-away-from home, vacation rentals are a great alternative to traditional hotel lodging. Every second year, for six days, the Festival of Colour celebrates the arts at Wanaka. Walk or ride a bike ride around the picturesque Lake Wanaka. A lake cruise is a pleasant outing on a warm afternoon. Or, try wind surfing or sailing. The remote wilderness of Mount Aspirin National Park includes beautiful river valleys and mountains. Kayak on the rivers. For snowboarding and skiing – including heli-skiing - South Island offers the ultimate skiing experience. Lake Wanaka has world-class areas: Snow Farm and Snow Park, Treble Cone and Cardrona Alpine Resort.

Enjoy a wine tour of the vineyards situated between Wanaka and Cromwell, which is located off of Lake Dunstan in the valley of the Upper Clutha. An hour’s drive from Wanaka will bring you to Queenstown. Take a ride on the steamship, Earnslaw, across Lake Wakatipu to the Walter Peak Farm – a longstanding sheep and cattle station. The seaport of Dunedin – where the Caledonia Society of Otago’s annual Highland Games are held - can be reached by driving a little over three hours from Wanaka.
