The Wānaka Watersports Facility is a community asset offering training areas, watercraft storage and changing facilities for clubs, teams and individuals. This architecturally awarded building provides a lakeshore base for non-motorised watersports and encourages access to Lake Wānaka.
Wānaka Watersports Facility Amenities
- Changing and shower areas
- Storage for rowing sculls, kayaks & paddleboards
- A training/meeting room
- Public toilets and two outdoor showers
Lakefront watercraft storage and full access to the facility is by key only. This community resource is managed in a Charitable Trust and is supported by the local Council.
We proudly provide this space for locals, including Wānaka Rowing Club, Wānaka Lake Swimmers and TriWanaka.
We also welcome the disabled community and have a “no-exceptions” policy for recreational access to the lake.
The Wānaka Watersports Facility is a busy place! Check out our online calendar to see practice times, club meetings and events.
Please note that our local user clubs have priority use of the facility and equipment at their booked training session times.
The Wānaka Watersports Facility couldn’t have been built without the generous support of many local individuals, businesses and granting organisations. We are incredibly grateful for their vision and assistance.
