Travel Tips for Wanaka
Bras NOT for sale!
As you leave Wanaka and drive towards Queenstown for about 10 mins, you will come across a fences with lots of bras hanging on. You may even find some G-strings hanging there.
I dont have any idea who or how it started.
But I guess someone just hang them there and many travllers do like wise when they came across this way.
Its amazing since they comes in all sizes and colours and they dont smell at all. Must be the long hours baking and suntanning under the heat.
Look out for it as it is about 5 mins away from Wanaka and 5mins before Cardrona Hotel.
There is a fences of shoes on may way at Arthur's Pass.
Defenitely the best way to see the surroundings of Wanaka. As you go up in the plane, they'll show you glaciers, Mt Cook and other mountains of Mt Aspiring National Park. I did a tandem jump and before you jump out, you'll wave at the camera and there you'll go. You've got a 30 second free fall and then the parachute opens (thank God) and you can take your camera out to take pictures of the beautiful view.
The Amazing Maze
The incredible Great Maze (Labyrinth) was first established in Wanaka by Stuart Landsborough in 1973.
It was the first Maze that uses wooden fences as barriers. The 4 Towers are coloured in Yellow, Red Blue and Green. You will have to follow the instructions to get to the other coloured tower.
The entrance to the maze is via the Cafe for $7. You may purchase a $10 ticket which allow you combined entrance to the Great Maze and Illusion Rooms.
There are emergency exit doors for those who can't figure their way out. Be patient and you will need at least 30 mins if you follow the exact directions without any help.

Wanaka is one of the most beautiful places I know in NZ, it's in the south of the South Island and pretty much has it all. Some of Lord of the Rings was filmed around this area. It's great no matter what the time of year.
