Must See & Do Haast

Four Reasons to love the gates of Haast Westland Area.


1. Blue Pools

Haast Blue Pools

Wind your way through a silver beech forest and discover the magnificence of these glacial fed pools. A breathtaking view from the swing bridge can be rewarded with visions of swimming brown trout....

2. Fishing

How about throwing a line over the edge of the wharf in Jacksons Bay?  Fishing doesn't get any easier than this. Glass of wine or a beer in one hand, fishing rod in the other. With a bit of luck fish could be on your menu.

3. Haast Rivers
