West Coast

The sparsely populated West Coast is remote New Zealand at its best. State Highway 6 stretches from sleepy Karamea in the North to alpine Haast in the South. The scenery of the West Coast is spectacular. Visits to the Franz Joseph and Fox Glaciers and the Punakaiki Rocks are essential, but just driving the rest of the Coast road is exciting - the white-capped waves and rugged coastline made all the more wild by the almost constant driving rain in the area. The small towns of Greymouth, Westport and Hokitika are quiet but friendly places, and provide useful service stops on your travels.

Must-do

  • Hike on Franz Joseph or Fox Glacier
  • Watch the waves hit Punakaiki Rocks
  • Raft the white water of the Buller Gorge
  • Sample whitebait in Hokitika
