New Zealand - The West Coast (Chapter)

16th Edition Sep 2012

This is the West Coast chapter from Lonely Planet's New Zealand guidebook.

Hemmed in by the Tasman Sea and the Southern Alps, the West Coast is like nowhere else in New Zealand. It has a remote end-of-the-road feel to it, but along the way are some 'must see' sights, such as Punakaiki Rocks and the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers.

  • marvel at nature’s beautiful fury at the Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki
  • maps
  • hunt out authentic local greenstone in the galleries of Hokitika
  • transport
  • kayak through the bird-filled channels at Okarito Lagoon
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Murchison & Buller Gorge, Karamea, Punakaiki & Paparoa National Park, the Coast Road, Reefton, Lake Brunner, Greymouth, Hokitika, Westland Tai Poutini National Park, Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier and the Haast region.
