Lake Wanaka, South Island, New Zealand 2/3
Known as the 'Lone Tree of Lake Wanaka' or 'That Wanaka Tree'. The story is that it started out as a fence post about 80 years ago, and sprouted into a photogenically crooked willow tree. Although famous, you still need to have the inside scoop to find it, as there are no signs to direct you to it.
The lone tree is right at the foothills of Mt Aspiring National Park.

Lake Wanaka, the 4th largest lake of NZ, is located in the Otago region
We missed both the sunrise & sunset at Lake Wanaka as we used our base at Queenstown. Thus it will be ideal to stay in Wanaka itself if you want to catch it in its best colours. This picture was taken in the early morning.
