Wanaka Ambassador

Next Date – TBC

Wanaka Ambassador is all about stories that you can connect with and share.  Stories of the early Maori history, the early European settlers, the development of the ski fields and the growth of tourism. You will learn legends of the lake and the stunning mountains, the rich history of Ruby Island, and the early pioneers of tourism which now adds to Wanaka’s place as the gateway to the beautiful Mt Aspiring National Park.
