About the West Coast

The West Coast is made up of eight geographically diverse regions each with it’s own character.

The pace of life here is so relaxing, you might just pack away your cellphone (unless it has a camera function). If you want to know what's what and find answers to those nitty gritty questions, this is the page for you. Here you can get information and assistance with your holiday on the West Coast.

You can see what people are saying in our blog, find information about the Department of Conservation and responsible camping, see what essential services are available on the West Coast, learn about our weather and climate, find a West Coast i-SITE information centre and more. Start planning your West Coast holiday today by browsing our visitor information links below.
