Makarora is a 60km scenic drive from Wanaka towards the West Coast.  Rich in history, adventure and natural beauty, outdoor adventurers love to explore the wilderness here. 

With a variety of walks located straight off the main road, go for a short stroll down to the crystal clear waters of the Blue Pools to spot the Trout, or don your hiking boots and head upwards into the mountains and enjoy the amazing views and DOC huts. 

You may wish to explore some of New Zealand’s untouched and secluded valleys off the beaten track, just a short helicopter ride away.
