Save the date...for this Highly Anticipated Wanaka Weekend.

1 July 2020

The Wanaka House and Garden Tour, November 14th and 15th, supported by Aspiring Rotary with all proceeds supporting the Wanaka Community Hub.

The Wanaka Community Hub, together with Aspiring Rotary, is embarking on its biggest fundraiser yet – a large scale two day Wanaka House and Garden Tour during the weekend of November 14th and 15th. This will be a real community affair with the whole town benefiting.

We invite you all to join us for this spectacular weekend in Wanaka, visiting exquisite houses and some truly magnificent gardens - most of which have never been opened to the public before. Many of the properties being showcased have been in the same families for decades.

The theme for the weekend is the ‘Story of the Basin.’ We have wonderful houses showcasing architectural evolvement over the years, their designs reflecting the truly wonderful surroundings and landscape that they sit in. The Tour also features some spectacular garden properties - some with wonderful park gardens and others with smaller, gorgeously cultivated residential gardens.

This wonderful weekend will be full of activities. Not only do we have houses and gardens to visit, but there will be creative stalls, art exhibitions, sculpture, and a ‘not to be missed’ elegant evening Garden party at an exclusive Wanaka location on Saturday evening.

All profits will go towards reducing the Hub’s debt and the weekend will bring a large number of people into town all wanting to enjoy Wanaka’s local hospitality and shopping, as well as the Tour itself. Our aim is to give the entire town a little boost through what is turning into a difficult year for many.

This highly anticipated event in our beautiful town will truly be a weekend to remember. Interest for the event has already surpassed our expectations.

Ticket sales will start on August 1st. Tickets will be strictly limited and we expect to sell out very quickly. For more details please email
