Love Wānaka raises funds, and awareness, for local environmental action – protecting this place now and for generations to come.

What Is Love Wānaka?
What Is Love Wānaka?
Love Wānaka is a community fund that exists so that visitors to our rohe (region), and the businesses connecting them, can play an active role in the protection and regeneration of this place.

We’re thinking more consciously about why, how, and where we travel. We need to consider how we might make our trips more sustainable and regenerative. It’s never been more important than now.
