From Monday 18 September there will be no parking available directly outside the Gorge Road Council office due to construction activity associated with the Town Centre Arterial Road. Our Gorge Road Council office will be open as usual. But if you’d prefer, you can make use of our online services via our website or give us a call on 03 441 0499.

Strong winds and heavy rain have affected many roads and some properties across the district. Queenstown emergency services and QLDC are currently dealing with a number of properties impacted by the weather. Some residents have self-evacuated and those requiring shelter are being supported at Queenstown Memorial Hall. Further information here.

Stage Two - Wānaka Lakefront Development Plan

Te Mahere Whakaahu mō te takutai o Wānaka

Stage Two of the Wānaka Lakefront Development Plan runs along the lake's edge between McDougall Street and Dungarvon Street.

About Stage Two

Stage Two of the Wānaka Lakefront Development Plan runs from McDougall Street to Dungarvon Street, and features a shared pathway running along the lakefront that connects Mt Aspiring Road Carpark with Wānaka's town centre.

110 new car parking spaces have been added along the lakeside of Ardmore Street, broken into sections to create view shafts and access points to the lakefront.

Stage Two features natural open spaces, with low-lying native planting, trees, and continuous access, making a greatly improved space for people and pedestrians to enjoy.

Saturday 9 September 2023

On Saturday we blessed Te Ara Maumahara and Te Huruhuru’s Map on the Wānaka lakefront, accompanied by glorious spring weather and many who have helped to deliver the reimagined Millennium Pathway!

We’d like to share our thanks to the Working Group formed to help deliver these new historical tiles, Kāi Tahu and mana whenua representatives, the Upper Clutha Historical Records Society, JFC, and the original Millennium Pathway creators.
