Stargazing

See constellations, shooting stars and if you’re lucky the Aurora Australis

Keen to experience the night life? Wanaka enjoys dark, clear skies and very little light pollution. The skies are said to be some of the darkest in the world which is great news for star spotting, and there are simply millions in the skies above Wanaka.

If you arrive in autumn, you might even be lucky enough to experience  the Aurora Australis. To get alerts on the best times to see an Aurora - follow the Aurora Australis New Zealand - Current Alerts facebook page.
