Wheels at Wanaka is proudly presented by ThreeParks Wanaka. The event alternates every odd Easter with Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow. As a charitable trust, hundreds of thousands of funds have been raised for various national, regional and local charities including Cure Our Ovarian Cancer, Heart Kids NZ (via the Heartlands Tractor Trek) and Wanaka Coast Guard.
Wheels at Wanaka is an all vehicle, all machinery history-in-motion vintage fair - including steam engines, tractors and farming heritage, cars, motor-bikes, trucks, earthmovers and heavy machinery.
Buzzing with energy, Wheels at Wanaka is huge! With over 50 acres of entertainment, tractor pulling and Enduro-X competitions, ATV and rally car demos, an earthmoving extravaganza and a non-stop parade ground programme - a weekend is barely enough to see everything!
Enthusiastic about all things wheels and machines? Like to see New Zealand’s unique transport, farming and construction history-in-motion, in all its puffing glory?
A weekend is barely enough to see everything. So, get yourself a 3-day visitors pass here, and when you get there, miss the lines and jump on one FREE loop busses to get yourself around the site.

Volunteers are key to making community events run smoothly and provide a warm local welcome for many people coming along from outside of our region.
You don’t need to be into cars, truck or machines to get involved - we also need the assistance of awesome, helpful, energetic and friendly people over the three event days, as well set up and pack down.volunteer
