Events 

Events reflect the place they’re in and the people who live there. That means incredible backdrops, acres of smiles and inspired individuals following their passion.

Which might explain why Lake Wanaka hosts more great events than most, and why the big names keep coming back, like Challenge Wanaka, Warbirds Over Wanaka, Winter Games NZ, the Festival of Colour, New Zealand Mountain Film Festival, Wanakafest Food and Wine,  Contact Epic Bike race, the Wanaka A&P show, and the Wanaka Autumn Arts School.

Because every event needs a sense of occasion.    


Lake Wanaka Events. Occasionally. Always Perfect.

"We chose Lake Wanaka as it sits perfectly with our desire to deliver a truly world class event that inspires everyone involved. The area around Wanaka is breath-taking, even by New Zealand standards..." Warren Bates - GODZone 2015 Race Director
