This family friendly attraction operates year round and whether it’s taking a break from activities on Lake Wanaka or having a rest day from skiing or snowboarding, there is something for everyone at Warbirds & Wheels.
Take time out from the tour and have a coffee or meal in our 1950s American retro diner, with views of the Southern Alps and aircraft activity overhead. The retail shop has a lot to offer with its wide range of toys, models, puzzles and memorabilia, jewellery and souvenirs.
