Jack’s Point trail network covers more than 25km
Over 25kms of walking and mountain biking track's right outside your doorstep is a gift, offering you a short stroll of a 15 min circuit to a longer full day hike. Trails traverse rolling tussock lands, rugged and seemingly remote bluffs and clifftop, fragile wetlands - where the New Zealand native Pukeko and falcon reside, and thread alongside the magnificent shore of Lake Wakatipu. Picnic spots are dotted throughout, from hilltop lookouts to the romance of a secluded bay at sunset - picnics available from the Restaurant.
Jack's Point Golf course is one of the most visually spectacular in the world. As an 18 hole par 72 championship course offers golfers an exciting challenge with five tee positions to choose from, providing all golfers an unforgettable golf experience. Details here.
Winter sports are on the doorstep, with Jack’s Point just 5 minutes from The Remarkables Ski Area entrance. A short distance beyond is Coronet Ski Area in clear view of Jack’s Point. A short drive beyond that is Cardrona and Soho Basin ski areas. And not to forget Treble Cone close by to neighbouring Wanaka.
Trout and Salmon Fishing
For the novice fly fisherman, Lake Tewa provides easily accessible training grounds. Similarly, however, trout are abundant in the deep, crystal clear waters along the Wakatipu shoreline, a spectacular environment to pass an early morning or a late evening casting through sunset.
Several world class fly-fishing rivers are less then a 10 minute helicopter flight from Jack's Point.
Sailing and Kayaking
Lake Tewa, a 10 acre freshwater lake alongside the Village, is a perfect environment for kayaking, small boat sailing and general family orientated water sports. It is stocked with brown and rainbow trout for the fledging fly fisherman, and several of its northern bays merge into wetlands, where native bird habitats have been carefully restored.
Lake Wakatipu - along the western flanks of Jack's Point - offers more challenging waters for the kayaker, water skier, and sailor. At nearly 300 kms long, shaped like a 'lightning bolt' around towering mountains, Lake Wakatipu offers a myriad of bays, anchorages and panoramas.
Mountain bikers of any level and fitness will enjoy the variety of terrain across the network of trails - from easy plateau to the challenge of serious downhill, with the option of biking all the way to Queenstown (26 kms, approx. 2 hours)
Our beautiful council owned playground features a flying fox and a large tunnel as well other innovative playground equipment. Set under the stunning back drop of the Remarkable Mountain range and adjoining the sports fields and the tennis courts, this area offers fun for all the family.
Tennis and General Sports
Jack's Point is a settlement in which to live, work and play. This is particularly important for the family, ensuring all recreational pursuits can be enjoyed without having to drive 20 kms or more. Two all weather tennis courts provide fun for all abilities.
A sports oval provides first class cricket in the summer, converting to a rugby and soccer field in the winter. Like all facilities at Jack's Point these are open to the public to enjoy.
