Wanaka Tipi Weddings
Wanaka, New Zealand
Wanaka is a unique mountain resort town nestled in the heart of the Southern Lakes of New Zealand. It’s our dream location for a Wanaka tipi hire business.
Surrounded by nature it truly is a place to stay, play & dream. The lake and mountain views are a thrilling backdrop for any tipi event. Wanaka is also the gateway to the Aspiring National park a World Heritage area and your starting point to a multitude of outdoor adventures.
Wanaka enjoys a balance of getting out and playing hard and taking some time out to enjoy the great food, bars and a coffee.
Downtown Wanaka has a mix of great cafes and restaurants serving yummy local food and great coffee. Some of our personal favourites include ‘Relishes’ right on the lakefront. Federal Diner or ‘The Fed’ tucked away off the main street. Or for a real bit of kiwiness try the ‘Goodspot’ caravan for a cheese roll and flat white. Yum, see you there!
Once you’ve sampled the yummy treats in town head out of town to explore some beautiful untouched New Zealand goodness. Drive around the lake towards the Matukituki Valley, stop at Glendhu Bay and take a walk along the shore. Hike the short walk above Diamond Lake. Or stop and explore the stunning waterfalls.
Another favourite spot just a short drive from Wanaka and home to Gather and Gold is Lake Hawea. Stand on the lakefront here and you really get the sense of being in an untouched paradise. This is NZ at its best.
Or of course, if you’re visiting us in Winter you have to go skiing! Wanaka has some of the best ski fields around. Cardrona has great slopes for the whole family to enjoy. TC (Treble Cone) is where most of the locals ski, a steeper field with a more off-piste focus (where people go to get rad). Then of course if you really want an NZ ski experience go Heli-Skiing and access the real snow with Gather & Gold’s very own ski guide Chris!
