For 3 days over Easter 2024, Wanaka will become centre stage for an extravaganza of aerial action. Wanaka is the most spectacular venue in the world to host New Zealand’s biggest aviation event – Warbirds Over Wanaka. 

Nestled on the shores of an azure blue lake amongst the mighty peaks of the Southern Alps, the natural amphitheatre created by these mountains provides a backdrop of stunning scenery.
