“The 2.5km walk from Wanaka to Waterfall Creek (or vice versa) is easy to access, flat and push-chair friendly which makes it possibly the most heavily-walked stretch of the whole lake.”

The track has many ‘wow-worthy’ sights along the way - it passes the absurdly-famous Wanaka tree with its adoring fan club of international photographers jostling for killer angles then skirts the manicured lawns of the Edgewater Resort with its millionaire holiday home neighbours and the picturesque vineyards of Rippon Winery. Sit under the willow tree on the beach at Waterfall Creek and admire the jewel of the lake, Ruby Island, a 3-hectare public reserve accessible only by boat.

Wedding parties often pose for photos on the lakeshore so you can watch the extreme lengths some couples go to get that perfect image to frame. If you have time for no other walk in Wanaka, do this one. And you can stop for coffee at Edgewater or wine at Rippon.
