West Coast, New Zealand - Find Vacation Rentals

Taste the unique – some might say: outlandish – traditional Māori food at the West Coast Hokitika Wildfoods Festival held in March. This is just one of the food - Kai –festivals in New Zealand. Six hundred kilometres of coastline outlines the West Coast Region of South Island, New Zealand. Join a guided tour where the rainforest meets Foxx Glacier and the Franz Joseph Glacier in the Southern Alps. For the super-adventurous, there is heli-skiiing, ice-climbing and mountaineering, sky-diving and rafting. Five of New Zealand’s national parks are found in the West Coast Region. With nature combining the ocean, rain forests, glaciers and grand mountains, this narrow region offers visitors over-the-top natural beauty within an eco-protected area.

The town of Hokitika used to be the hub of the New Zealand gold rush in the later part of the 1800s. Pounamu – greenstone, also known as nephrite jade - was sacred to the Ngati Wairangi iwi and Ngai Tahu people. With natural landmarks named Karamea, Punakaiki Pancake Rocks, this unique area is interesting and pristine. Along the coast you may encounter dolphins and crested penguins and there is a white heron breeding colony in Okarito lagoon.
