Take me to....
Taste possum pie at Pukekura, pan for gold in Shantytown, hike the glacier at Fox or Franz Josef, there’s just so much to do in this magical part of New Zealand.
If you are lucky enough to travel the West Coast on one of its crystal clear days, don’t miss the opportunity to take a scenic flight up and over the mountains, you won’t believe the sights!
The northern end of this wild, historic coast has a special micro climate. Here you can venture onto the famed Heaphy Track or just enjoy the majestic native bush.
View the wonderful natural forest from above with a treetops walk or try some white water rafting.
No one should drive past the incredible rock formations at Punakaiki without stopping to marvel, and if time allows take a day walk into the Paparoa National Park.

Quality Assessments: In New Zealand independent Quality assessments of accommodation establishments are available, on a voluntary basis, by Qualmark, which has a star rating system, and by the New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Association.
Many properties choose not to participate in either of these schemes which should not be taken as any indication that they are not of an equally high standard as those that do. TrueNZ Guides does not carry out quality assessments and the inclusion of any property in this Guide does not imply or give any endorsement or standard. Individual properties have self assessed themselves as being suitable for inclusion in this Guide and TrueNZ takes no responsibility for their respective claims & descriptions.
