Destination West Coast

The timeless allure of New Zealand’s wild West Coast is in its natural wilderness areas, friendly people, and the range of exciting activities it boasts.

Dating back to the earliest settlement of New Zealand, the ‘Coast’ has earned a name for itself through gold and greenstone, coal, glaciers, whitebait, and rugged bush and coastal areas, to name a few.

Gold and greenstone are still found in this scenic region, along with more modern tourism attractions such as hiking and biking, scenic tours on land, water and in the air, and any number of eateries, cafes, art, craft and jewellery galleries to visit.
For an adventurous week or a weekend, check out the West Coast.
