Wilson Bay

A lovely wee bay on the way to Glenorchy from Queenstown, with a small number of holiday homes scattered on the other side of the road.

This little bay is a great stopping point while travelling to Glenorchy from Queenstown or just for an afternoon picnic and a dip in Lake Wakitipu.

There is a walking/biking track that connects Wilson Bay with the 7-Mile Bike Park.
