Warbirds Over Wanaka - International Airshow 10th, 11th, 12th April 2020

Join us for three days of high-octane aviation excitement at Warbirds Over Wanaka International Air Show over Easter weekend 2020. This is one event not to be missed!

In 1988 aviation entrepreneur Sir Tim Wallis shared his passion for Warbirds and Classic Aircraft with the public by creating an Airshow that is now a biennial centre piece of Central Otago’s tourist attractions. The first airshow and country fair attracted 14,000 visitors to Wanaka Airport.

Delighted with this success, he decided to expand on the theme and hold a biennial event over the long Easter weekend. As the show grew so did its support and now around 50,000 people make the pilgrimage to Wanaka for their weekend of excitement.

Now acclaimed as the largest Warbird Airshow in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the world's top four Warbird airshows - you should not miss this event!
