West Coast Media Resources

We love to see articles and footage about our spectacular region and encourage you to consider the West Coast of the Southern Alps for your next story - your audience will thank you for it. So untouched, so unspoilt - yet with just so much variety to offer. There's even espresso coffee, just like you get in the cities. And you all know how wonderful us Coasters are at being hospitable - you will never want to leave. The main message to get across is TAKE YOUR TIME, TAKE IT IN. Oh, and don't forget your camera.

Tourism West Coast are very happy to assist with your media enquiries. We can help you with:

  • Media hosting
  • Editorial
  • New product
  • Story angles
  • Fabulous images

Simply contact us to discuss your needs.


Filming on the West Coast

The West Coast offers a wide range of commercial photography & filming opportunities. Please note that due to the vast abundance of our conservation land, many locations may require a Department of Conservation film permit. More information is available here.
