Glendhu Bay Track
This lakeside walking/bike track heads west from Wānaka around the lakeshore to Glendhu Bay, which is a popular camping area in summer time (and home to the famous Wanaka Tree)
Head west around the lakeshore from the Wānaka Visitor’s Centre on the Ardmore Street. The formed track starts beyond the parking area.
The track crosses the fringe of the Edgewater Resort’s manicured lawns on its way to the Waterfall Creek Access Road. There is a parking area here and the track continues beyond, crossing Waterfall Creek on a footbridge.
The track undulates into Damper Bay and passes a private boat shed at the bay's head. Beyond Damper Bay the track continues through to Glendhu Bay Lakeside Holiday Park. There is parking here and trampers can continue through the campground to where the section ends, at the Wānaka-Mount Aspiring Road/Motatapu Road junction.
