    This mid-sized town on the South Island of New Zealand is postcard perfect. Situated on a lake with snow-capped peaks surrounding it's the perfect jumping off point for mountain adventures like hiking, camping and skiing.

    Wanaka is a completely gorgeous town on a lake, surrounded by mountains. I loved it here and could have stayed a long time.

    Wanaka is one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. Went there many years ago and it just doesn't change...still as beautiful today as it was the last time I went.

    We discovered this gem on our random road tour. Small cozy town on the lake shore with beautiful peaks all around. We liked the setting and feel better than Queenstown. Nice shops and pubs along the shore so you can sit and enjoy the sunset.
