Rub shoulders with the locals, some of whom you might recognise, at the Wānaka Skate Park.
A favourite of local children for years, this park on the lakefront has a giant dinosaur slide, plus plenty of other rides to entertain the kids. There is a free BBQ beside the park and a nice shallow swimming beach for children right in front of the park.
Wānaka is the last place you’d think of when heading out for a surf! But with the right kayak or board, there’s massive amounts of fun to be had for kayakers, body-boarders and surfers on the Hāwea River Wave.
An attention grabbing tourist attraction which helps raise awareness and funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation of NZ. Donate a bra or better yet some money and while you’re there check out all the other things to do in Cardrona.
