About

Jackson Bay is a working fishing port and a popular fishing spot in summer, it's a great place to catch crayfish and just meander.

More information

Jackson Bay marks the farthest extent of the West Coast's road network: the small road which meanders along the coast from Haast, 32 kilometres to the northeast, terminates at the sleepy fishing village of Jackson Bay.

Jackson Bay is a working fishing port - boats are tied up at the long wharf that stretches out into deep waters. A popular fishing spot in summer, it's a great place to catch crayfish and just meander.

Beyond Jackson Bay sheer bluffs plunge into the sea and mountain ranges form an impenetrable barrier to motorised traffic.

Feel the sheer isolation, as if beyond the end of the road is the unknown; although south of here lies Fiordland and Milford Sound.
