Wanaka is beautiful. There’s no other way to describe it.
I arrived in the evening onto Ardmore Street, which was alive with people as it is the main drag in the town. Tonnes of restaurants and eateries along there.
The next morning was crisp and sunny, just like a perfect autumn day should be. So, I decided this was the perfect time to go and see Lake Wanaka and get a couple of great shots of the mountains. Literally, I couldn’t have photoshopped it, it was that beautiful. My photos don’t even do it justice!
I got a nice one of the Wanaka tree, which a lot of people take a photo of. But come on, how could you not, it’s so pretty!
I had been recommended to go and hike up Roys peak, but I only had a short amount of time so I was going to opt for a quick hike up Mount Iron. But with the weather being so beautiful, and the lake so picturesque, I thought reading by the lake would be better.
I had also heard about cinema paradiso. Which is obvs a cinema but it has sofas and it has a couple of cars you can sit in to watch a movie.
And a few cinema seats at the back. Anyway, I went to watch Kung Fu Panda 3 and it was awesome! They have an interval as well, and they freshly bake cookies so they’re ready for people to buy during intermission. Like amazing!
Go and see the movie, and go to Cinema Paradiso!
I can’t rave about Wanaka enough. I totally wish I had stayed here longer!
