Latest update regarding the Coastal Pacific

COASTAL PACIFIC UPDATE

Work is continuing at pace on the reinstatement of the Main North Line following November’s Kaikoura earthquake. Parts of the line are open for freight goods and crews are working fast in both directions but higher safety standards and ongoing seismic events mean that passenger services will be delayed longer than freight. Because of this, it is unlikely that the Coastal Pacific will operate this summer season (September 2017-April 2018).

The Coastal Pacific will be back to service as early as possible for the 2018/2019 season and it is hoped the season will be extended if possible. This could mean an earlier start date than September 2018. We will continue to keep you updated as a return to service date becomes clearer. In the meantime we can book coach transportation for you between Picton and Christchurch.

West Coast Wilderness Experience - PM Tour AKL-AKL BB2 (1245-1730)

Experience Auckland's spectacular West Coast beaches and native bush on this half day afternoon eco tour.

Just 30 kilometres from downtown Auckland is the city's largest regional park, Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Travel to the Arataki Centre, perched high in the Waitakere Ranges, where sweeping decks offer breathtaking panoramic views from the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Hear about the stories and secrets of the Waitakere Ranges and admire the traditional M?ori carvings that stand guard over the centre.

Experience the power of the wild West Coast as your day tour continues. Auckland's black sand beaches – Muriwai, Bethells, Karekare and Piha – are renowned for their rugged and awe-inspiring beauty. Feel the black sand beneath your feet and marvel at the forces of nature at play as the surf crashes down on the shore.

Accompanied by knowledgeable and experienced guides, immerse yourself in the lush native rainforest and listen out for birdsong as you walk the easy bush tracks amongst New Zealand's famous kauri trees and giant tree ferns.

Following your West Coast experience, return to the hustle and bustle of central Auckland.
