“I flew over it in a Tiger Moth... now that's a special experience!”
Review of That Wanaka Tree

That Wanaka Tree
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The feature for me in Wanaka was Classic Flights Tiger Moth.
A "Bucket List" experience.
But we also walked the lakes edge from town - about 20 mins - to check out THE TREE. The walk was enjoyable, even the odd hardy sole in swimming, but it is the walk TO the tree that is the special.

Couldn't find it the first day - but a local pointed the direction to it. We got a fabulous photo on a drizzly day with someone in the forground using a tripod covered with an umbrella - the links some folks go. Fab photo though.

That Wanaka Tree has become icon as photographer's subject.
It can be stunning depending on the time of the day and season.
We were lucky to witness it firstly at 2.30pm and then on our return journey from town centre at 6.00pm when a guy was playing piano at the lakeside.
A photo opportunity not to be missed.

Well if you are coming to Wanaka the SW corner of the lake is a great place to visit and photograph this probably the most photographed tree in the South Island. Pity about the idiots wading out to get photographed hugging the tree

Nice view with the tree sticking out of the water. Worth a visit if on the way. If in a hurry or out if the way, I think you can give it a miss. Some paddlers might be in your frame but that's fine as it would be a good pic as well!
