Wanaka is a beautiful town located on the Shores of lake Wanaka in the heart of the Southern lakes. In winter it offers some of the best skiing in the Southern Hemisphere and is one of the largest ski resorts in New Zealand with loads on offer apart from skiing. In Summer there is a wide variety of adventure sports, walking, cycling, swimming, and sightseeing. If that's not enough Stuart Landsborough's Puzzling World offers a huge 3D maze to get lost in. I managed to complete it in a little over an hour.
The Warbird's Museum offers a large collection of WWII fighter planes and the Transport Museum must have well over a thousand vehicles of every description. One of the highlights for me was a Toyota Landcruser that was ordered in the 1970's. Instead of the farmer getting "fire-engine red" that was ordered he got a red fire-engine.

Who needs 97 ski lifts... You can have an amazing day with just two. When Treble
Cone has good snow it's as good anything I have skied in Europe. And if you
can't ski.. The view is well worth a look.

It was really nice to come to N.Z. with my new boyfriend. everything was so
beautiful. The skiing was amazing, even though i dont know how, he helped me.
very romantic. It was a shame my friend didn\'t have a nice time like me, her and
her new fiancee did not have a very good time. But thank you sooo much for
making wanaka otago such a nice place. For sure i will be returning. (maybe for
my hunneymoon ;)... )
