A popular ski and summer resort town situated at the southern end of Lake Wanaka, Wanaka is the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park. Primarily a resort town and experiences extreme summer and winter temperatures. Originally settled during the gold rush of the 19th century and continues to grow rapidly, with the population increasing by 50% between 2005 and 2015.
Te Anau is the Gateway to Milford Sound. A tiny town of 1900 situated reassuringly on the banks of Lake Te Anau, a lake restricted to passive recreation only. With no Jetskis or Jetboats to break the lapping of the waves. You’d be forgiven for forgetting what day of the week it is.
