New Zealand Culture - West Coast

New Zealand culture is interesting - and very much a multi-cultural society, a melting pot of the Pacific, a unique mix of Polynesian, European and Asian influences. The West Coast is rich in history both Maori and European, and colourful in exploration, settlement and civilisation - the West Coast is a region unique in New Zealand. The early explorers, Thomas Brunner, Heaphy, Fox, Smart and company, left a legacy of courage and endurance that inspires people still.

The West Coast offers a stunning diversity of landscapes, from the semi-tropical north to the sub-Antarctic south. Glaciers descend from alpine peaks into temperate rainforests, the only place in the world where this happens, and its easily accessible to visitors - less than 3 hours drive from our location at Lake Brunner. 

Mountain streams abound with big trout... and the range of freestone rivers, spring creeks and lakes must be seen to be appreciated.

The native birds are unique to New Zealand and are numerous locally. There are lots of walkways, Scenic Reserves, and several National Parks in close proximity.

History 
We have a rich history - 2000 years of Polynesian occupation, 200 years of  European settlement. A multitude of gold rushes, logging and coal mining has produced a region populated by tough, resourceful people.

Native Birds

We have a large range of native birds locally, and many of these are endemic (unique) to New Zealand.

Stories

Included are a few short stories for your entertainment, on a range of outdoors topics.
