Wanaka has developed over the past ten years into a very desirable New Zealand tourist destination offering a raft of outdoor pursuits including three skifields, heli-skiing, jet boating, fishing, tramping and much more. The ski resorts, along with the development and expansion of Mount Aspiring College and its outdoor pursuits courses, has meant that the town has attracted a lot more permanent residents.
The annual rainfall is around 600 mm per annum, and there are four distinct seasons to enjoy. The summers are hot and dry, with the winters cold, crisp and invigorating.
The town has been steadily growing and with the sealing of the Crown Range, this trend is continuing. Ease of access from Queenstown, with its International flights and direct flights from Auckland makes Wanaka a great place to live and holiday destination both winter and summer.
