Scenic Photo Points

Don’t miss any of the most photogenic, instagram-worthy spots around the Wānaka region

Explore our designated photo points to see the most scenic spots around Wānaka. Tag your photos #lovewanaka and @lakewanakanz and we'll share our favourites on Facebook and Instagram

Photo Points 1 - 9 can be done either walking or biking and Points 10 - 24 can be done as a scenic drive with the opportunity to stop and do some walks. At each point there is an information board telling you a little bit about that Photo Point and then directing you on to the next.

You can visit them in any order, visit all or just some of them. But when you're done you will have seen some of the most scenic places around Wanaka, Cardrona, Luggate, Lake Hāwea and Mt Aspiring National Park.

These are self-guided tours. To see where all the photo points are located - view our google map or download a map:
