The Haast Region, on the West Coast, covers over 2,500 square kilometres of diverse and spectacular landscapes. The Haast Area includes Haast Township, Haast Beach and Haast Junction. Haast is famous for its dramatic landscapes. Situated alongside Mount Aspiring National Park, in the heart of a world heritage area, UNESCO has compared it to the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef as a significant natural treasure. more
From Haast to Jackson Bay there are empty shingle beaches, dunes, lakes and wetlands, all with the soaring backdrop of the Southern Alps making it an outdoor enthusiast's playground. Tramping, hunting and if you want speed, jetboating tours on the local rivers are available. Haast is West Coast Whitebait country so it is widely available here. For a fabulous whitebait pattie call into the Curly Tree Whitebait Company, the Fantail cafe or the Otoko espresso for a real local treat in simply the best environment in which to enjoy this delectable delicacy.
