Family Friendly Wānaka

Adventure, nature, museums, activities - so much to see and do  

Lakes, forests and mountains to explore, unique wildlife to discover, as well as a wide selection of activities suitable for kids, makes Wānaka an ideal family holiday destination.    

Family activities here do not mean you’ll always have to part with lots of money, take a picnic by the lake, explore the many walking and cycling tracks, visit farm animals at the Wanaka Lavender Farm, or take in the latest film at one of the boutique cinemas.    

Learn about the region's aviation history at Warbirds and Wheels, and a trip to Puzzling World is a must do for families. 

For the adventurous there is plenty to do, zoom down a river in a jet boat, climb a waterfall, kayak to a secluded island, learn to fly a plane or hit the slopes for skiing in winter.
