Stage Three - Wānaka Lakefront Development Plan

Te Mahere Whakaahu mō te takutai o Wānaka

Work on Stage Three of the Wānaka Lakefront Development Plan is now complete, which sees the implementation of a number of features between Bullock Creek and Wanaka Marina, including:

  • Restoration and development of native vegetation - large scale planting to maintain the lakefront's rugged, wild landscape.

  • Te Ara Wānaka - a shared pathway for pedestrians and cyclists that connects Wānaka's Town Centre with the Marina.

  • A boardwalk running along the lake's edge.

  • Informative signage - highlights of the area's significance to Kāi Tahu, and details of native plant and animal life found nearby.

  • Improved landuse - improvement of lawn areas to allow for recreation activities.
