Greetings to you all, the people, the voices, the many representatives of the four winds, living within the islands of NewZealand and beyond.


The West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand is richly endowed in heritage assets of which many are located in some of the most stunning, lush, rugged, sparsely populated and often remote places. These historic sites hold the stories of Maori and Pakeha fruits of human endeavour, triumph and tragedy, hardship and prosperity. Many also played a key role in shaping New Zealand.

As we develop this site in 2011 you will see emerge not only the activities of Heritage West Coast but an in-depth insight into many of the places to visit, the history that surrounds them and the enormous effort being made by people in the region to conserve and present these sites for all to enjoy.
