Spent these 6 days over New Year down in Wanaka and Queenstown:
For the Climber’s out there. Wanaka is awesome. Valley 12km north west has weeks worth of climbing, we only stayed for 4 days but wish had done more. ALL FREE!!!!! (If you can get hold of a guide book and have your own gear)
If your looking for somewhere to spend New Year’s Eve, Wanaka Lake front, Free Music Festival and Fireworks. The Bar’s opposite the Lake Park are a good place to chill out and meet random holiday people there for the night as well.
Queenstown has loads to do for the adventure guy. It can be abit overpriced for some things but we found LUGE RACING at the top of the Cable Car a great laugh. Sarah Won most of the races…… My excuse it I was going to fast into the corners and crashed (Good excuse I think)
