Wanaka is an iconic New Zealand family holiday destination, be it camping at Glendhu Bay in summer or for skiing in the winter. If you’re travelling to Wanaka with kids, here’s some local suppliers ready to make your life easier!

Lake Wanaka Babysitting Service have been a leading childcare provider for 20 years. Dedicated, trustworthy carers available for all situations… perhaps you’re keen to have a day up the mountain by yourselves, are attending a wedding or have a meal out booked?  Give them a call to make a booking – 03 443 4903.

Just not enough room in your car for your family and all the child paraphernalia you need to get away?!  Don’t panic, hire your gear from Wanaka Baby and save yourself a packing headache!  From car seats to cots they have a huge selection of gender and age specific toys, prams and highchairs to suit all ages of little people.  You can check out their full hire equipment list here. What’s more,  they also write a great blog!  We think that their most recent post on making family car trip fun is spot on.
