Westport is a small town in the Buller district surrounded by beautiful tree clad mountains and situated next to the sea. In the last 10 years mining, tourism and agriculture have expanded and the area has experienced a renaissance. Subsequently younger families have moved into the area and the demographics have become more vibrant. If you want to get away from it all the West Coast is for you with sub-tropical rainforests, lots of walks including the Heaphy Track, Punakaiki’s Pancake Rocks and blowholes, a seal colony, arts and crafts and surfing. It is steeped in history from its gold mining and whitebait fishing.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there are a huge variety of adventure and recreation activities on offer. Cycle the easy West Coast Wilderness Trail or take advantage of the quad bike tours, caving and white-water rafting.
