Our trip to Denniston was surrounded in cloud due to the wet weather. Fortunately, none of the ambiance was taken away, if not enhanced by the mist covered ruins and step cliffs. Such intriguing history and such a dangerous environment for the miners to work in back in the early days of West Coast mining.

From the “Light house” car park the walk along this wonderful stretch of NZ coastline to the Fur Seal colony took us 45 mins each way allowing us multiple stops for photos. If you have the time it’s well worth it. On a clear day from the point you can see up to Karamea and down to Mt Cook. NZ for free at its best. #nzforfree

Absolutely stunning walk through Denniston history. We walked in along the very East path. There are signs and information points to read about the location and history. At the turnaround point is the fan house, which is still standing and at the entry point of part of the mine. Simply amazing and unexpected part of the day.

An I-Site with an abundance of information, with dedicated staff who have an extensive knowledge of the local area. You can also book a variety of travel here, including accommodation and Doc bookings for the great walks. We also have a large selection of retail, some from local artists around our region.
Helpful and welcoming personal, could answer all my questions and even gave me additional information

Have really enjoyed a number of the bike trails. The new section out to Carters Beach was fab, esp loved the awesome boardwalk sections.

Fantastic walk from carpark up to Tauranga Bay seal colony, lots of information boards. Wide walkways and viewing platforms. We were saddened by the lack of seals 2x adults and numerous pups. The pups were having a lot of fun in the pools of water and clambering around the rocks. We last visited 26 years ago and there is a marked difference in the number of seals. Great parking and clean toilets. A must do in Westport.
