Ruby Island Family Adventure Trip
Ruby Island is a small island close to the Wanaka township. Its garden-like setting and close proximity to town attract kayakers and boaties to stroll around the island, swim off the beach, and BBQ away the summer days.
About Ruby Island
Hee-haw! Nope, it’s not the Wonky Donky…meet Hetty & Denny, a cheeky donkey & horse who are off on a Ruby Island Adventure! This season, your family can join in, with our ‘Ruby Island Family Adventure’ package.
Many children have turned up with this iconic book, excited to re-enact their favorite horse & donkey’s adventure. Our ‘Ruby Island Family Adventure’ package takes your family on a child-friendly, fun cruise to Ruby Island where you can enjoy a picnic and a relaxing stroll around the island.
The small sheltered beach near the jetty is a great place to relax or cool off on those hot dry Wanaka days with a swim in the bracing waters of Lake Wanaka.
