Overlooking the Wānaka township, Wanaka Heights Accomodation is just a five minute walk to Lake Wānaka and the CBD's shops, caf&eacut;s, restaurants and supermarket – New World Wānaka. Once you're in town, it's a 15 minute easy walk by the water to the famous Wānaka Tree.

Situated in the heart of the Southern Alps, Lake Wānaka and the surrounding area is a diverse and spectacular region with endless options for visitors. Mount Aspiring Park – with its wealth of walking and biking trails and stunning scenery – is on your doorstep, along with the beautiful Glendhu Bay (home of the Bike Glendhu mountain bike park) and lakeside townships of Lake Hāwea and Makarora (where you'll find the famous Blue Pools nearby).

If it's raining or the Wānaka weather isn't playing ball, no worries there – we're just a few kilometers from year-round activities like Puzzling World, Wānaka Airport and the National Transport & Toy Museum, plus plenty of local vineyards and craft breweries.

If you're heading to Wānaka this winter for skiing and snowboarding, Cardrona and Treble Cone ski fields and the Snow Farm are just a 30-minute drive away. The Remarkables and Coronet Peak – along with great shopping, wine tasting and eating – are just an hour's drive over the Crown Range to Queenstown.
