West Coast

The wildest side of New Zealand, the West Coast has the power to touch your soul. The West Coast is a place of brooding mountains, icy glaciers and surreal coastal formations. The region is well known for its rich coal mining history in addition to its abundant unique natural attractions.

Discover Nikau palms and semi tropical fruit trees in the north to temperate rainforests in the south. In between are wild coastlines, deserted beaches and dense forests all waiting to be explored by you. It’s the holiday you know you’ve been needing for ages.

The West Coast towns include:
Buller: Karamea, Reefton, Westport and Punakaiki
