Family fun in Lake Wanaka
05, May 2010
Lake Wanaka has things to do for the whole family and is home to a number of unique activities and attractions that appeal to adults and children of all ages. There is plenty to do here with your family and it doesn't need to cost a fortune.

 
 
Suggested activities:
  • Voted in the Top 10 Weirdest Attractions in the world - Puzzling World is a must!
  • The National Transport and Toy Museum has something that will appeal to everyone in the family 
  • Have A Shot is as challenging as you want to make it but the mini golf is always fun
  • The NZ Fighter Pilots Museum is a must see for an insight into our wartime aviators 
  • Basecamp Wanaka is a great place for the kids to test their head for heights, while parents can either watch while having a coffee or compete against them on the Clip 'n Climb
  • Cardrona Adventure Park offer a wide variety of Quad / ATV Bikes, Buggy and Monster Truck rides to suit all
Free stuff:
  • Grab your bikes (or walk) and head out on one of many tracks - there's something to suit everyone.
  • Take a stroll down to the playground at the lake and have some fun 
  • Bring some bread and head to the wharf to feed the trout and eels - and of course the ducks!
  • If you're after a bit of a challenge then take the kids and bikes to the Lismore Park jump park or for the younger ones try the Dinosaur Park on the lakefront
  • Head to Eely Point or the lakefront and use one of the free BBQ's for a picnic at the lake.
  • Take the togs and head to Bremner Bay for a swim
Evening suggestions:
  • Try some of our family friendly restaurants - the kids love Amigos and Lonestar is always great
  • Cinema Paradiso is a must - check out a movie and the hot home made cookies and ice cream at half time
