Arthur's Pass National Park
The West Coast borders Arthur's Pass National Park at the main divide and there is a striking difference between the landscapes on either side.
The drier eastern side is predominately Mountain Beech while to the west thick rainforest dominates.
This park has a large amount of family friendly short walks off the road and our cheeky kea birds are common here so get your cameras out, just make sure they don't steal it.
The world famous TranzAlpine train stops here too.
