When you have the challenge of a 125 km mountain bike journey around Lake Hawea you want to make sure your accommodation is taken care of, so you can focus on the race. Edgewater is located on Lake Wanaka, in Wanaka township itself and offers the ideal location to energise before the event, and importantly relax and celebrate after you have completed the challenge.

Alternatively rest your weary heads in our hotel style rooms, featuring all the amenities you would expect from a four-star plus Qualmark ™ graded hotel. All rooms, suites and apartments open out onto either a balcony or a patio area and most have car parking very near by, if not directly outside the room!

“Radio Wanaka broadcasts on 92.2FM & 97FM in Wanaka and 99.1FM in Cromwell. Sister-station ‘Roy’ broadcasts on 94.6FM. The two are Wanaka’s only locally owned and operated radio stations and as usual will be playing a big role in the lead-up to the race.
Radio Wanaka’s owner Mike Regal completed last year’s 95km Contact Classic at a gentlemanly pace and reckons it’s got to be the best mountain bike race in the country. He’s back in 2014 hoping for a better time and better weather while Radio Wanaka breakfast host Bradley Craig will be on site at the Lake Hawea Hotel welcoming the competitors home”
