West-port is located at the North of the West Coast. The area is dominated by lush native bush, lakes, rivers, and rugged coastline, all overseen by the great Southern Alps. The northern West Coast has one of the mildest climates in New Zealand, perfect for scenic walks, amazing adventures, and relaxation on the wonderful beaches. With two national parks, Kahurangi and Paparoa and extensive bush lands, there are many walking and tramping tracks providing access to one of the world's most beautiful natural environments. The forests are host to a myriad of native birds including rare species, while at Cape Foulwind you can visit a seal breeding colony. For more inquisitive or adventurous types, descend into an underground labyrinth, investigate a limestone cavern system, challenge the white waters by raft or kayak, surge the rivers by jet boat, or explore the bush lands by mountain bike, Argos, or on horseback. Raft through the surf on a dolphin encounter, tube raft through underworld tunnels and glow worm grotto's, grab a surfboard and ride the big West Coast waves, or take hold of a fishing rod on a chartered fishing boat. Jump in a unimog and go for a spin. There are many exciting places to dine, some award-winning, and many offering local delicacies from the land, sea and rivers. Try the local range of beers from the local boutique brewery, Miners. Wherever you are staying, bars, restaurants and cafes are always close by. Dine in a street cafe, enjoy a unique dining experience in an unusual local building or watch the sun set as you dine overlooking the surf of the Tasman Sea. The area is rich in kiwi history, from the arrival of the explorers to the thousands of gold hunters of the 1860s, the traders, early settlers, farmers and coal miners. Historical interpretation centers and museums, including Coaltown in Westport and the Reefton Visitor Centre 'Quartzpolis Mine', provide a fascinating insight into the region's turbulent past. There is still gold in the local streams for you to try your hand at panning and you can explore the old mines and relics th...morecollapse
