Wanaka is located in one of the most beautiful alpine regions in the Southern Hemisphere, an area that includes Queenstown, Glenorchy, Central Otago, Milford Sound and Mt Aspiring National Park.

With breath-taking scenery, diverse activities and amazing culinary experiences, it is a tourist wonderland that caters for families, sports enthusiasts and thrill-seekers. It attracts millions of visitors each year and an annual spend in the billions.

Riverside Residences has a prime location in Wanaka off State Highway 6 where it crosses the upper Clutha River – easy to locate, close to amenities and just a short drive to Roys Bay on the Lake Wanaka foreshore.

It is the perfect base to enjoy the natural beauty the landscape offers and many attractions in the wider region.

Riverside Residences is situated on a large picturesque site that wraps around a popular retail precinct. Sharing an entrance from Alison Avenue, the development has been designed to maximise privacy, light and views by locating the units around the edge of the site.

Just 60 minutes drive away is Queenstown International Airport, the gateway for travelers and tourists to the region. Renowned ski-fields, Cardrona and Treble Cone are an easy 30 minutes from your doorstep.
