Welcome to Lake Wanaka
There’s more than one reason it’s called the world’s first lifestyle reserve.
The lack of crowds; the freedom to do what you love; the scenery; the space among the like-minded; the welcome from people who understand; the energy and the daring; the crystal water…
…It’s about the time to breathe, take it all in, feel carefree, full of life, and realise it’ll stay with you long after you’ve left.
Lake Wanaka. Reserved for lifestyle. Year-round
