Van upgrades

Wanaka hosts visitors from around the world. Many are here for weeks or months seeking work to support their journey.

Van’s are popular among visitors given that they provide both transport and accommodation.

The Wanaka Community Workshop is increasingly attracting visitors seeking to use the facilities and tools to refurbish and upgrade their vans.

With the arrival of cooler temperatures the focus of visitors is upon getting their vans as comfortable and warm as possible.

Such visitors play an important role in our economy – our hospitality sector in particular suffers from a lack of workers. Van’s provide an alternative to housing and thus enable our regions economy is perform at a higher level that it would otherwise do.
