Discovering New Zealand’s West Coast
This area of the South Island, which is commonly referred to as The Coast, has some incredible landscapes and natural scenery just waiting to be explored. A campervan is a super way to do this drive, which is done along State Highway 6.
Starting in Nelson, drive southwest along Highway 6 past the beautiful mountain peaks of the Kahurangi National Park, where many choose to stop and explore for a day or two before continuing to the Victoria Forest Park.
The Victoria Forest Park is a beautiful beech forest that is home to a number of exotic birds, waterfalls, mountains and stunning scenery. Climbing, mountain biking and rafting are just some of the things that can be enjoyed here. It is an ideal spot for nature lovers and adventurists with facilities for campervan onsite.
Continue along State Highway 6 to the Paparoa National Park, which is famous for its Pancake Rocks and Blowholes. These can be found in Punakaiki, which is a great place to relax for a few days. The mountains, karsts and rugged cliffs here are unforgettable and make for the perfect finale before heading to Greymouth to return the campervan.
Campervans in Nelson available for this journey range from two-berth to six-berth, so couple, friends and families can all take this stunning journey together. Vehicles are on offer through well-known companies such as Discover NZ and Kahurangi with economy and deluxe options available. Couples on a budget will enjoy cruising around in a two-Berth Hi Top, while those looking for extreme comfort and ease will truly love the Kahurangi’s six-berth campervan.
