An easy short walk to Lake Wanaka through restored wetlands
This short (1.3km) walk takes you to Lake Wanaka shoreline. The access track, off West Wanaka Road, leads you along the eastern boundary of the Emerald Bluffs estate, around a magnificent wetland area and down to Lake Wanaka and Emerald Bay. More than 100,000 native plants, in over 60 different species, have been planted to date. The wetlands includes a lagoon with lots of birdlife and trout, and the snow-capped peaks of the Buchanan mountain range as a backdrop. There is a lovely beach and BBQ facilities to enjoy on the lakeshore.
