Wanaka: The Lake Wanaka Region

Author(s): Neville Peat

NZ Non Fiction

Reprinting, advised Jan 2007. Wanaka is the boom-town of the South Island lakes and mountains, making news because it keeps breaking real estate records. The reason for this, and for its being an increasingly popular holiday destination)is that it is a major centre for eco-tourism, with a wealth of natural features to enjoy. It provides access to Mt Aspiring National Park, to the Matukituki Valley, to the Cardrona Valley, to two lakes, and to the Haast Road and Makarora. This area encompasses a multitude of possible outdoor activities. This book is what visitors to Wanaka have been needing, but is also for armchair travellers. It covers history, what to see and do, and local flora and fauna. There is detailed information about walks, tramps, climbs, fishing, skiing- you name it. Lots of colour photographs and map. Contents: 1 A Place in the Sun, 2 Town and Around, 3 Made for Walking, 4 Water, Air and Winter Pursuits, 5 The Wild Side
