Get out and about and experience what Wānaka has to offer is the message from Lake Wānaka Tourism's latest initiative “Have you ever.”
“Now more than ever, it's important the community support local, tries something new and experiences the activities, stays and experiences that Wānaka has to offer,” said Lake Wānaka Tourism General Manager Tim Barke.
The latest Lake Wānaka Tourism campaign is prompting locals and visitors to think about activities, stays, dining and other experiences that they've yet to tick off their bucket lists and inspire them to try something they've never done before in Wānaka.
Combined with social media promotion, Lake Wānaka Tourism has partnered for the first time with several Wānaka businesses and building owners to install street posters, featuring work from some of the region's photographers. These street posters are due to be installed this week at Helwick and Warren street locations, as well as in the Precinct.
Barke said the benefits were two-fold; raising profile and awareness of all the experiences on offer, as well as providing a platform to showcase some stunning imagery.
“This is the year to start ticking off some of those experiences you've always dreamt about doing, to support local, and get out and enjoy this beautiful place we get to call home,” Barke said.
The campaign will run from this week until the end of April, with street posters being removed from walls on completion. Businesses and building owners are advised to contact Lake Wānaka Tourism should they wish to support local, join the campaign and volunteer wall space for additional poster installations.
