Because of to a large number of boats travelling from Wanaka to the Tuki Festival at Glendhu Baytomorrow, the Queenstown Lakes District Council has imposed a prohibited area (pictured) for private boaters that will be in place from 11am until midnight.

Harbourmaster Marty Black said this would be done to ensure everyone remained safe, given the number of boats expected to be out in the bay. It also ensured the safety of those festival-goers expected to swim in the designated patrolled swimming area on Saturday afternoon.

Private boaters wanting to launch their boats from Glendhu Bay will still be able to use the new boat ramp at Rotary Park during the festival.
