About

Paparoa National Park features coastal forest along a spectacular coastline.

More information

Paparoa National Park features coastal forest along a spectacular coastline with an abundance of nikau palm trees, steep limestone cliffs and deep canyons, caves and underground streams.

And much can be seen easily without travelling too far from the car.

The park is best known for the bizarre Pancake Rocks and impressive blowholes of Dolomite Point near Punakaiki. The blowholes put on their best performance at high tide so check at the local iSite for times.

For the adventurous (and experienced) there are amazing caving opportunities and for families you can do an easy canoe up the Pororari River.
