DC3 rides

by bryah

Hey there,
Does anyone know if they are going to do flights in the dc3 plane for the public, if so how much does it cost and can you pre-book or do you just do it on the day? I went to the Warbirds over Wanaka a few years ago now but we paid to do a short senic flight over lake Wanaka and I would like to do it again this year.
email at holysmokes_2121@hotmail.com if you know!

Checked with my husband who knows a lot about such stuff. He was surprised not to find the DC3 flights on http://www.pionair.co.nz/ anymore.

There are DC3 flights over Auckland and to Great Barrier Island. Check on:


Perhaps somebody else knows more.

Have you seen this website:


They even do 10 day tours on a DC 3 from Auckland (Ardmore Airport).

Just checked a Sunday ride. For an adult this costs NZ$ 80.

Flights at Wanaka vary from year to year, depending on the available planes and waether conditions. As far as I know advance bookings aren't possible, you book on the day, at the airfield. I don't recall there being any DC3 flights in recent years, just the Catalina and, a couple of shows back and very expensive, one of the warbirds.

Travel Tips for Wanaka

We have friends who are very interested in building straw bale houses. To our surprise, we saw a few in Wanaka, very nice ones, and quite a few different designs. They were very popular, and you can stay in one too!

We had a look around, took photos, and found out about the company for them.
If you are interested in this type of building, then you may want to check the website.

You will find one of the oldest hotel in New Zealand here at Cardrona.
This is the central attraction of this small little township.

Cardrona Hotel is located 15 mins away from downtown Wanaka. It was built in 1863 among the hills and valleys of the Crown Range.

There is a general merchant and post and telegraph building which was built in 1871.

A few houses can be seen along the quiet town.

A walk in the park

by TheWanderingCamel

Mt Aspiring National Park that is - a wild and wonderful world of wide meadows and rushing streams in the Matukituki Valley all leading deep into the mountains that surround Mt Aspiring itself, the highest peak outside the Mt Cook National Park.

To begin your walk in the park, head out of Wanaka to the east along Mt Aspiring Road. You'll come to the end of the tarmac but the road continues and is usually in a reasonable enough condition for ordinary vehicles though there are several fords to be crossed. If you don't have your own transport there are buses that make the 55km run out to the start of the main trail - ask at the Visitor's Centre in town for information on these.

The trail begins at the Raspberry Creek carpark, taking you out into the park along a gently rising grassy track beside the Matukituki River. From here, an hour-long walk will give you good views of the Avalanche and Rob Roy Glaciers. If you're looking for something more challenging, you can go on to tackle the Rob Roy Track, 10km long and quite demanding in places - it leads off from the swing bridge over the river.

There are any number of tramps in the park, from a few hours to several days. Some, like the one described here, are an easy stroll, others are very demanding. The Mt Aspiring Visitor's Centre can provide you with all the information you need to plan your hike successfully and safely.

Millennium Walkway

by Robmj

A great 2 hour relatively flat walk with excellent lake and mountain views. Along the way are various historic (marked) spots. This track is good for mountain biking as well, with a few uphill and downhill bits.

You can walk from the town to the start of this track, would take about half an hour and takes you past the Rippon vineyard on the Western shore of Lake Wanaka.

We passed through Wanaka on our way through Otago to Queenstown. We didn't really have too much time, but dutifully parked the car and got out for a wander. It was a gorgeous, sunny day but with a bitterly cold strong wind whipping across the lake we were soon freezing our butts off! We climbed back in the car and headed on our way.

Wanaka will have to wait!
