The Wanaka region is a playground for both New Zealand and international visitors. Throughout the year, thousands of people come to Wanaka to climb, tramp, kayak, go canyonning, mountain bike and fish. For most the experience is a memorable one. For a few, it is also memorable, but for the wrong reasons; these are the ones who encounter difficulties and require assistance. Operating in conjunction with the NZ police and the Rescue Coordination Centre, the unpaid volunteers of Wanaka LandSAR carry out between 35 and 50 operations a year, making Wanaka consistently one of the busiest SAR groups in the country.

More about us

Wanaka Land Search & Rescue provides a search, rescue and recovery service to members of the public who encounter difficulty in the mountains, hills and rivers of the Wanaka region. We are a 100% volunteer organisation who carry out between 35 and 50 operations in an average year. Most of these have successful outcomes but on occasion we are tasked with recovering bodies and returning them to family members.
