How to get to Wanaka & Bike Glendhu

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 most likely land in Wanaka’s sister-city; Queenstown. A decent selection of rental cars and campervans are available to hire close to the airport. From there, you can begin to make your way to Wanaka. And hey, we know the views are jaw-dropping; but be extra careful driving over the Crown Range and always be sure to check road conditions

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’ve arrived in beautiful Wanaka, follow the directions below to find Bike Glendhu!

Glendhu Station Homestead 

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!
