The location. The Legend.

Getting to Wanaka

By Bike, bus or four wheels from near and far

The trails of Bike Glendhu await, just ten-minutes’ drive from Wanaka town centre. For fool-proof directions, transport from surrounding areas and accommodation options, keep reading.

If you’re flying in from out of town, you’ll end up in the world-famous Queenstown. A decent selection of rental cars and campervans are available to hire close to the airport. We know the views are jaw-dropping but be extra careful driving over the Crown Range. Alternatively, one can catch the bus or shuttle from Queenstown Airport to Wanaka and gawk out the window all you want.

From the West Coast, InterCity buses ride down the line every day, stopping in Franz Josef, Fox Glacier and Haast.

Once you get here, there’s plenty of great places to put your feet up from hostels, hotels and campgrounds to bed and breakfast galore. There’s even a lakefront campground right across the road at Glendhu Bay, perfect for families or just anyone that likes waking up to one of the best views in town. And that’s saying something.

01

Head west (that’s left at the lake) from the township of Wanaka on Wanaka-Mt Aspiring Road.

02

Follow Wanaka-Mt Aspiring Road for 12km until you reach Glendhu Bay.

03

Turn left onto Motatapu Road and follow for 500m. Our entrance is on the right.

Glendhu Station Homestead provides the ultimate Glendhu Bay experience!

The homestead is a historical landmark that has been thoughtfully adapted into a rustic yet refined space. The front lounge of the homestead was originally the post office and general store, built in 1894. This served those working on the original Wanaka Station Run which at that time included, Alpha Burn Station, West Wanaka Station and what is now Glendhu Station.

The homestead itself includes four bedrooms, a large bunk room and play area, two bathrooms, a formal dining and lounge, TV room and a large kitchen and informal dining.

Plus, it’s just a quick pedal up to Bike Glendhu – bonus!
